BURR 



"...Is it all so far behind us? Did all of that ever happen? 

Can we really return to the inane college games of the 

fifties? Where in the world are we?"

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR 



In looking through past volumes of the Chestnut 
5m/-/- and old annuals from other schools, it seems ironic 
that memory books could be singly so unmemorable. 
The main problem is how they're put together. 
Yearbook staffs have been compiling last names and 
first initials from left to right and matching them to 
mob shots with the assumption that the reader knows 
the rest of the story. If a university has a lot of groups, 
it will have a pretty thick book. 
Not many students though, will 
appreciate or understand more 
than a few groups on a few pages. 
By throwing in an opening section 
on campus buildings, or a shot of a 
dissected frog, nothing distinctive 
is said about the year-what people 
thought and did that was any 
different from the previous or 
following years. 

The 1974 Chestnut Burr is our 
effort to print as much of the KSU 
story as we could fit into 400 
pages. We produced 66 
photostories with hundreds of 
headlines and thousands of words modeled after the big 
magazines over the last fifteen years. We chose 
somewhat of a conservative style for an ambitious book 
design. 

The stories from Kent State demanded a change in 
coverage. A razzle-dazzle montage of day-glo graphics 
and no identification would be the wrong medium for 
documenting what this last year was like. We wanted to 
let people talk for themselves. We wanted to get inside 
groups instead of shooting the surface-rather than 
shooting a/ people, publishing person-to-person. 

Much of this year's book shows people coping, 
picking up the pieces and putting them back together. 
People kept busy with sports, tried out nostalgia in dress 
and dance, stuffed Volkswagens, and went drinking. All 
of the things that are supposed to happen at college. But 
the whole experience wasn't reruns. A lot of politics 
died off. Some unheard of movements started. 

The 1974 Chestnut Burr will live beyond the first 
reading, to document college life the way we found it to 
be.

Paul Keane resigns 



Don Quixote 



"This is a painful column for me 
to write, not because it will be an 
easy target for my critics, but 
because admitting that I have 
withered into a tired Don Quixote 
will trouble those few people who 
have taken nourishment from my 
idealism and thereby sustained me 
these past two years. But I write it 
in the name of truth. 

"I still believe it is possible to 
make poetry out of life, but I no 
longer believe it is possible for me 
to do so at Kent State University 
or in Kent, Ohio. And that is why I 
have resigned from my position at 
the University, effective the end of 
winter quarter. " 



These were the words of Paul 
Keane, alias Broderick Eudid, 
upon his decision to leave Kent 
State. To those who knew him, and 
to those who knew of him, he was 
quite a campus character known 
for his grande-eloquent manner of 
speech. 

He was a modern-day Don 
Quixote, armed with a huge ego 
and vast concern, battling the 
windmills of apathy which he 
found consuming the university 
community. 



Of Keane's accomplishments, 
two stand out as most familiar to 
the university. 

Together with Greg Rambo, 
Keane collected 10,380 signatures 
on a petition to President Nixon, 
requesting the reconvening of a 
Grand Jury to investigate May 4. 

Keane, Rambo, and President 
Olds were granted an audience with 
the President's Civil Rights adviser, 
Leonard Garment. Although httle 
came out of the meeting, Keane 
helped to alert the government to 
the fact that the May 4 issue was 
still very much alive at Kent and 
around the country, and that the 
students would not rest until 
justice was done. 

Keane was responsible for the 
formation of Pop's Snow Squad, a 
group which shovels sidewalks for 
Pop Fisher, a 75-year-old crossing 
guard . 

Said Keane to Charles Kuralt of 
CBS News, "We're trying to show 
respect for a 75-year-old man 
who's got guts enough to stand out 
there in zero-degree weather three 
times a day and help little kids 
across the street." 




gives up on KSU 




Shades of Paul Keane 



In addition to these two 
note-worthy crusades, Keane 
pubUshed a variety of articles in 
the Kent Stater under the pen 
name of Broderick Euclid, 
campaigning to stop apathy on 
campus. In one article he called for 
an organization to be formed with 
the initials S.E.X. (Society to End 
Xenophobia). He defined 
xenophobia as the fear or hatred of 
foreigners or things that are 
foreign. 

In another article, he wrote of 
a widespread disease on campus 



known as Aversion, its victims 
known as Averts. Aversion, 
according to Keane, is the 
inability to look fellow students in 
the eye when passing and smile. 

He begged for involvement: with 
culture, fellow man, noble causes, 
anything that would drive the 
campus community out of its 
apathetic passivity. 

His outspoken manner evoked 
mixed reactions from the 
university, some very critical, some 
sarcastic and others supportive. 

His work as a resident student 



adviser found him trying to break 
down the barriers and steriUty of 
dorm life by creating the 
"Implosion Pad". He had hauled all 
of his furniture, books and 
magazines into a second floor 
study lounge of Wright Hall, and 
created a warm cultural 
atmosphere condusive to 
meaningful conversation. 

Keane was a "Snow Architect", 
a "Campus Treecologist" and a 
very rare phenomenon at Kent 
State. He was so rare, in fact, that 
Kent State wasn't ready for him. 




Above, "Do you realize it's only one 
month since twenty million viewers saw 
Kent State students shovelling snow for 
Pop Fisher on the Walter Cronkite show, 
and only one faculty member has come 
up to me and said what good publicity 
that was for KSU and for students?" 



Right, "We got 10,380 signatures in ten 
days, the largest petition response in the 
history of Kent State. A clear mandate. 
And then 40,000 others from around the 
country." 




And so, frustrated, disillusioned 
and tired, he decided to leave. 

In his last contribution to the 
Stater,Keane wrote, "When I close 
my office door for the last time on 
Friday, April 13, and walk quietly 
away from Kent State University, I 
would like to think I've left 
something more than my public 
image behind, an image which at 
times has been as burdensome to 
me as it has been troublesome to 
others." 

Keane, as the campus Don 
Quixote, explained, "Everything 
I've tried to do has been an 
attempt to uphold the worth of the 
individual." 

"Hell — the fact that the 
university has had to deal with me 
as an individual is in itself a 
triumph in a bureaucratic world," 
said Keane with a smirk. 

However, just as Don Quixote 
had his faithful follower Poncho, 
Keane explains that he needs to be 
appreciated too. Admitting that his 
battles have worn him out, Keane 
leaves Kent in search of a new 
crusade. 



Above left, "Under the guise of 
Broderick Euclid, Keane has constantly 
barraged the Stater with columns, letters, 
advice and poems." 




Right, "I've met the four kids' parents. I've seen them 
cry and I've seen their anguish-I've been able to 
identify with them." 

Far right, "Without further explanation, let me simply 
say that I have enjoyed being at Kent State these 
difficult three and one half years, but I will leave after 
winter quarter, when the snow season ends. I can no 
longer continue to pour my emotional, physical and 
financial energy ijito a bottomless vessel." 

Below, "I've never been able to work my anger out at 
the universe~so 1 just internalized it. May 4th pulled it 
out. I guess I've purged myself of a lot of grief and 
anger," said Keane, sitting with Dean Kahler, a student 
wounded May 4th, 1970. 






[BUkKI 



A generation' later 

One more 



"For some people a candlelight vigil is a fitting 
memorial," Jerry Persky said. "But I think it leaves me 
somewhat demoralized to stand there with a candle if I 
don't have any sense of progress. We tried to put the 
four murders into some kind of educational context." 

Jerry Persky, with the help of others, organized an 
alternative to the memorial march sponsored by the 
Center for Peaceful Change (CPC). 

Not all Kent students agreed with Persky's stand that 
the CPC events were irrelevant. Proceeding 2500 strong 
past the site of the old R OTC building, east on Main 
Street, up and around Music and Speech, the crowd 
huddled at the site of the killings near Taylor Hall. 

Judge Jack G. Day spoke briefly to those making 
the walk on the evening of May 3. His address was 

intended to initiate an all-night watch at the four death 
sites. 

Fewer and fewer kept the vigil-morning saw only 
four people in a cold parking lot. 

Later the next morning, Persky and those backing 
the May 4 alternative program, marched through the 
rain to the Commons.

Each in his own thoughts, 
obiivious to the weather... 



Tramping through the rain, 
the May 4 alternative program 
participants began with an anti-war 
march starting in downtown Kent. 

Heading for the Commons, 
the marchers passed the site of 
Jeffrey Miller's death and cried 
out, "Jeff Miller, live like 
him... dare to struggle... dare to 
win." 

Massing together on the 
Commons in biting cold, about 200 
students listened to Vernon 
Bellecourt, national director of the 
American Indian Movement (AIM), 
and John Froins, one of the 
Chicago Seven. 



One of the program organizers 
introduced Bellecourt as a relevant 
speaker for May 4 because, "What 
happened to students here has been 
happening to Indians for a long 
time." 

Bellecourt and other speakers 
were invited to attend the 
alternative program by the May 4 
United Front, Vietnam Veterans 
Against the War(WAW), and the 
Joe Hill Organization. 

"Rather than take the 
'negative' aspects out of May 4 as 
the CPC has proposed, we would 
like to educate ourselves and others 
about the reasons for the violence 
experienced here on May 4, 1970."

Flames of sorrow 

or flames o f an get 



For the first time since the 
memorials began three years ago, 
an opposing program was 
organized to offset the University 
sponsored services. 

"Some people said our 
alternate program was exploiting 
the dead, but I beUeve that the 
university has exploited the dead," 
Jerry Persky said. 

"It is foolish of the University 
to say they were just four 
students," Persky explained. "The 
things that must be considered are: 
who were they, what were they, 
what were they doing out there 
and why were they involved-then 
you can decide whether they are 
exploited." 

To demonstrate solidarity in 
the demonstration, the ROTC 
building was burned in effigy to 
show ROTC as a violent institution 
still having no right to be on 
campus, a spokesman said. 

Many campus Liberals voiced 
disapproval of the effigy burning. 
Persky accounted for this, he said, 
there are two trends on campus 
concerning what people should do 
about May 4. 

Speaking for the left, a 
member of the Attica Brigade, 
accused Uberals of "believing that 
the American system can work-if 
it's made to." He cited people 
working for a federal investigation, 
Uke Paul Keane and Greg Rambo, 
as "poUtically naive". 

"We know how federal grand 
juries are operated in this 
country," the Attica Brigade 
member continued. "Grand juries 
are used by the government to 
suppress and repress all dissent, Uke 
the grand jury that indicted 
EUsberg." 



Agreeing that a grand jury 
might be helpful, a former leader in 
Students for a Democratic Society 
(SDS), Richard Hess, pointed out 
however, "How can you redress the 
government that shoots you?" 

According to To be Fixler, the 
alternative program included"an 



explanation of events leading up to 
May 4 and their connection with 
most other colonial and military 
repression. 

Watching the ROTC building 
burn m effigy, a freshman student 
said, "I wonder what program the 
four dead Kent students would 
have wanted to attend."

"It's past time-that 
something be done" about the May 
4 shootings. Dean Kahler said at a 
Memorial Service for the four 
students killed at Kent State. 

Wounded and paralyzed in the 
1970 anti-war confrontation with 
Ohio National Guardsmen, Dean 
Kahler has pushed for a federal 
grand jury investigation of the 
tragedy. 

Kahler is not alone in his 
desire for further federal inquiry. 
Working with Paul Keane and Greg 
Rambo, co-authors of the May 4 
petition calling for a federal 
investigation of the killings, Kahler 
has met with Nixon aides. 

Speaking at the Memorial 
Service with Kahler was Norman 
Cousins, former editor of World 
Magazine. Cousins signed the May 
4 petition and said, "The principle 
challenge of our time is to make it 
possible for men neither to kill nor 
be killed."

Davies -- Gov't hand 



Peter Davies, the author of the 
book The Truth About Kent State, 
has been searchmg for that truth 
for over three years, at much 
personal sacrifice. 

He was born in England in 1931, 
and moved to the States in 1957 
with his wife. "England was 
becoming too socialistic," he said. 
"I always felt that the attitude 
toward individual rights in the U.S. 
was similar to mine." 

Davies has been running his own 
insurance company, which has 
suffered neglect since his 
wholehearted involvement in 
uncovering the facts about May 
4th. 

"My insurance business has gone 
downhill," he said. "It's also 
affected my family life. My wife 
supports what I'm doing, but she's 
torn." 

The question arises as to why a 
man (who was, prior to May 4th, 
not involved with Kent State) 
would pursue such an issue at the 
expense of his business and family. 

"To me, Kent State was the last 
straw," he explained. "I'm doing it 
for my children. We must compel 
the law to be upheld, for if we fail, 
an incident like Kent could happen 
again." 

Davies, together with the help of 
the United Methodist Church, has 
waged a three- year battle pushing 
for a reconvening of a Federal 
Grand Jury to investigate the 
shootings. 

"It's been up and down," Davies 
said. "Every time you thing you're 
going to make a breakthrough, it 
falls through." 

That breakthrough almost came 
in October. Elhot Richardson 
finally announced a reconvening of 
the Grand Jury. One week later he 
turned in his resignation. Once 
again, Davies' efforts were 
thwarted, after coming so close. 

"Why is this administration so 
paranoically determined to keep 
the case closed?" he asked. "Could 
it be that an order was given on the 
National level? Was the desire to 
crush campus unrest so keen that 
someone in the higher-up said, 
'Shoot off your guns, boys, 
nothing will happen to you'?" 

An incident that has totally 
mystified Davies, and greatly 




in May 4 shootings 




aroused his suspicions, occurred 
last August 1973. 

This incident concerned a phone 
conversation between Davies and a 
highly respected Washington 
correspondent for the New York 
Times. Davies said he told the 
correspondent about Justice 
Department speculation on an 
additional inquiry into the 
shootings. Asking to remain 
anonymous, the correspondent 
informed Davies that there would 
never be a full-scale investigation 
made. 

The correspondent, who had 
been very sympathetic to Davies' 
cause, said, according to Davies, 
the pain of no investigation, to the 
parents of the dead students, 
would be nothing compared to the 
pain of a full investigation would 
reveal to the nation. 

Davies pleaded for an 
explanation, but the man said that 
he had been sworn to secrecy. He 
only said that his advice to "let 
Kent State die" was simply based 
on his "judgement" of what he had 
seen or been told by governmental 
officials. 

This unsolved mystery has led 
Davies to believe that there may be 
a correlation between President 
Nixon's nomination of William 
Saxbe for Attorney General, and 



the fact that Saxbe wants to see 
the Kent case closed for good. 
Davies said he feels that Saxbe is 
out of line in determining what is 
going to be done with a case which 
he has no access to, before he is 
appointed. 

Saxbe was quoted as saying, "It 
is cruel to re-open a case because of 
public clamor." 

"If Saxbe is confirmed, and 
closes the case," Davies said, "it 
will be like trying to deal with 
John Mitchell in 1971." 

By November things looked very 
bleak for Peter Davies. He said, 
"Once you've started on this type 
of thing-and things come out~it's 
impossible not to pursue it. With 
this Saxbe thing, you can't give up. 
Perhaps I'm being selfish when I 
think of what I'm doing, and still 
doing, and they could care less. It 
disgusts me." 

As Saxbe is an ex-colonel in the 
Ohio National Guard and a 
personal friend of ex-Governor 
Rhodes, Davies said he will try to 
persuade the Judiciary Committee 
that it would be a conflict of 
interest for Saxbe to make a 
decision on the Grand Jury. 

Davies has gotten many positive 
reactions to his book. People have 
been writing to him and asking 
what they can do to help. Many 



say their views have been changed 
after reading the book. 

His main concern is that many 
students have let the issue die. He 
said, "It's very disheartening to the 
families of the dead students. They 
feel that the students should take 
issue. WiU this sit and pile up with 
the rest of the injustices?" 

On a more positive note, Davies 
said, "I have no doubt that the 
whole lid wiU eventually blow off 
this matter, when we once again 
have decent people in the 
administration. We'll be descending 
again. We will not let up the 
pressure. They will be sick of the 
sound of our voices." 

"As was the Boston Massacre of 
1770, I believe that Kent State 
1970 will also prove to be a turning 
point in American history." 

By January, the efforts of 
Davies and the parents of the dead 
students had paid off. The Grand 
Jury following the investigation 
had been reconvened. When 
contacted, Peter Davies had this to 
say: "We've proved that we've 
made an impact on Washington to 
the extent that the Senate 
Judiciary Committee has gotten a 
written statement from William 
Saxbe saying that he will keep his 
hands off the case. All of the work 
to get the Federal Grand Jury has 
finally paid off, but I think it is 
tragic that it took all of this time. " 





"What I don't understand is the 
resistance to the Federal Grand 
Jury." 



"It seems that if there's nothing to 
hide, they would settle this 
matter." 



"Perhaps Norman Cousins was on 
the right track when he raised the 
question of the possibility that the 
decision to fire was made on the 
national level."

The Dance 




Photography by 

Leland Hale Ball 




These are some of the Kent State performing 
dancers. Photographs concentrate on Paul Scardina and 
members of his company, along with Fritz Luden of the 
Artist-Lectures Series. This gallery documents the 
weeks of rehearsal, culminating in last spring's Creative 
Arts Festival. 

From what I saw, I believe that dancers dance for the 
same reason that photographers photograph. That is, to 
create a concise statement. 

One of the dancers said, "Modern dance is 
constructed so that each choreographer may put his 
own attitude, his own vocabulary into a piece."

Reclaiming the land 



A wooded lot near Korb Hall 
was reclaimed by Indians on 
Columbus Day, as an attempt to 
preserve some of the natural land 
on campus. 

'0-chee-ce (the people's) Hill' 
was reclaimed by the American 
Indians Rights Association (AIRA), 
'in the name of peace-not only 
peace with other men but also 
peace with the earth.' 

AIRA members constructed a 
15-foot teepee covered with an 
orange and white parachute. They 
spent the misty day cooking on an 
open fire and talking to passers-by. 

'It is not that we want to own 
the land. Indians don't believe you 
can own or sell land-just as you 
can't own or sell water,' said one 
AIRA member. 

The teepee remained for a few 
days before it was torn down by 
other students. AIRA members 
tried to continue the vigil 
--however the weather turned 
colder and the Indian group was 
forced to move on.

True Stories' emerge 




44 



on life in Tri-Towers 




by Steve Evans 

So you thought you were gonna 
get a hot sex story on Koonce 
Hall--a report banned on 
newsstands everywhere, mainly 
because Linda Lovelace (star of 
Deep Throat) gave a mouthful of 
"True Tale" accounts that no one 
could ever swallow. 

A juicy story I can't give you, 
because those architecture students 
on the top four floors and the 
Spanish- and French-speaking 
students on the fifth and sixth 
floors obviously have things to do 
other than entertain us vvith heavy 
perversions. 

The architecture floors were 
quiet the night I observed-not a 
deafening silence, but more a 
contemplative atmosphere. 

For the inside story I 
interviewed a soft-spoken, 
wiry-haired student-he looked like 
he spent his evenings with 
Chaucer's Tales. 

After thirty seconds in the 
glass-enclosed lounge. Super Ark 
(his nickname) looked at me and 
snapped, "Who are you?" 

"Steve," I replied. 

"Don't get wise." 

"What year are you in?" 

"Nineteenth," 

"No, I mean in school." 

"Oh! You're getting technical. 
I'm in my second year, but I 
should be in my fourth." I could 
see that. 

"You like living here?" I asked. 

"I should-it was my idea. Me 
and two other guys planned the 
whole thing." 

"I thought Morbito did it." 

"No-we did it." 

Super Ark goes on with his 
drawings and student number two 
walks in and joins the interview. 

I began questioning again, "You 
guys eat here?" 

"I don't. I used to weigh 325 
pounds and I'm still reducing... put 
us down as uncooperative." 

The architecture live-in program 
initially was just one floor, 
beginning in the winter of '73. 

An RSA (resident student 
adviser), majoring in architecture, 
thinks that this setup is great 
because now upperclassmen can 
help freshmen with their work 
problems.

Koonce Hall 



Various life styles co-exist 

When 60 students with 60 different life styles 
are put on one floor -- they either have to pull 
together or fight it out!" -- Koonce Hall RSA 





^ 



ly 



•H 




"Industrial design" majors may 
soon live here so that students of 
both majors can exchange ideas. 

The rooms seem well suited for 
two students-especially since an 
architecture student's bedroom is 
also his workshop. 

If you're looking for the kind of 
girl who will say "Om/, oui!" then 
all you have to do is walk down the 
stairwell to the sixth floor and 
you're in France. ..well. ..they speak 
French there anyway. 

The year-old program requires 
that students complete two 
quarters of the beginning French 
series before they can participate. 



Natalie is from France and she is 
also the RSA. She says that 
students living on this floor 
progress linguistically, but they 
also become more open-minded. 

"They're considering forcing 
students to live four in a room and 
shutting down the other half of the 
floor," Natalie said. "Twenty-five 
people live on the floor now with 
no crowding problems." That's 
right, pack 'em in. 

"We are limited in funds," 
Natahe added, "but we try to go to 
museums, see movies and we took 
a trip to Quebec in February." 

One might think that he/she 




took a trip south of the border 
after she/he walks down the 
stairwell to the next floor. 

When I knocked at the RSA's 
door to gather some info, she 
repeatedly answered in 
Spanish--made me feel guilty 
answering her in English. 

"You don't have to be a Spanish 
major to live on the floor," I was 
told by a nursing major. She said 
that this is a fantastic way to learn 
the language without going to 
structured classes. She hopes to 
work with Spanish-speaking people 
someday. 

"The people really get close up 
here," said one student. Come to 
think of it, nobody complained 
about boys and girls living 
together. Their social Uves extend 
beyond the dorm, because the 
language groups eat together. 

No matter which floor you live 
on, both are total learning 
environments because speaking is 
supplemented by movies, slides and 
floor discussion. 

Floors one through four are 
open to all girls. 

"I just don't like dorm life," said 
a freshman girl who doesn't want 
to party from 11 p.m. until 
somewhere around 3 a.m. That's 
when most of her floor parties end. 

"Maybe I would like another 
dorm, but there's really no privacy 
here. Unless the ghls whisper, the 
room next door can get an earful 
through the paper-thin walls. 

"Blacks and whites should not 
be randomly put in rooms," she 
continued, "because of the 
different lifestyles and social 
codes." 

Unless a student Uves on one of 
the majors' floors, there is really 
little dorm activity except Black 
social functions. Most white 
students provide their own 
entertainment. 

And a few of you are wondering 
what happened to Wright Hall. 
Well, it's still there with all its 
Sheraton elegance, but fortunately 
it's now an office building. It just 
never made it as a zoo. 

But the people who work there 
find it quite suitable. The once 
reefer-vapored corridors now reek 
of fresh paint and perfumed 
secretaries. A fine office building it 
is-but for some strange reason it 
didn't make it as a men's 
(animal's?) dorm. 



Leebrick Hall--1 used to think 
that all the people that lived 
there were eggheads. I was 
wrong-there is an assortment 
of heads living in that dorm.' 



Leebrick always was, is, and 
probably always will be-Leebrick. 

I used to think that all the 
people who lived there were 
eggheads. But I was wrong-there is 
an assortment of heads living in 
that dorm. 

"There are less artists, less 
musicians than there used to be; 
it's almost too peaceful," said one 
Leebrick resident. 

The dorm is magnetic, attracting 
seniors who think it's time to 
study, those who want to smoke in 
peace, and even kids who lived on 
your block 

"It's really noisy on my floor. 




48 



Kids are partying all the time," said 
another student. 

"Leebrick has really mellowed 
out," said one mellowed-out 
student. 

Obviously the dorm has toned 
down along with the rest of the 
campus. But parties still abound 
with a little more sophistication. 
Floors are free to use a certain part 

of their allocations for whatever 
they choose. The well-organized 
floor usually does some creative 
cooking, before they celebrate with 
their liquid stimulants. Leebrick 
isn't without healthy physical 
activity because the open lounges 



provide good courts for some 
modified versions of tennis, 
basketball, hockey, and bowling. 

Well anyway, the people in their 
rooms get tired of looking at the 
walls, walls, walls, and collect in 
the lounge for a little studying and 
a little fun. 

The popcorn pops, coke fizzles 
and the people sitting in the lounge 
close up the space with a little 
more butter and a little less salt 
with their popcorn. 

So that's a part of Leebrick and 
it also includes Penelope and her 
bird, who came prancing into the 



lounge as I was sitting there eating 
popcorn. 

"My bird is sick," she said. "I'm 
teaching my bird French, but no 
one talks to it." 

"Do you reaHze that he's writing 
this down?" said an onlooker. But 
Penelope just shrugged her 
shoulders and said, "An revoir. " 

Security guards now roam the 
halls because the number of 
rip-offs became disastrous. 

Definitely a great place to hve-if 
you're wiUing to pay for it. Or you 
could forget about the meal ticket, 
get a refrigerator and cook on the 
floor stove--that's not so bad. 




That's no lady— 




just an RSA 





There's a mother Uving with the 
guys on second floor Johnson Hall. 

No, she's not there to comfort a 
homesick freshman, she is Dorian 
Cragin~the only woman Resident 
Staff Adviser (RSA) for a men's 
floor on campus. 

Cragin, affectionately known as 
"Mom" to her second floor 
residents, did not expect to be a 
RSA for men when she first 
accepted the position. 

"It took a long time to get used 
to relating to guys," said Cragin, 
"you have to be very frank with 
guys. I'm still and always will be a 
tomboy, I guess." 




Architecture 



Design, draft, construct: 




iii^uimg 



"Graphite Junkies"~a name used 
by one architecture student to 
describe himself and his colleagues. 
"You want to stop, but you've got 
to keep on going." 

Another student visualizes 
architecture as his lover: "I spend 
all my time with it, I always think 
about it, I sleep with it; I can't get 
along with it-and I can't get along 
without it." 

Architecture students contend 
that their devotion to studies is 



rarely paralleled in other university 
departments. They maintain their 
major is the hardest, and do so 
with pride. 

Cited in the past for its steep 
attrition rate (12 or 15 students 
graduating from an original class of 
125), the school now requires stiff 
entrance exams before accepting a 
student into the program . 

Out-of-state students, who make 
up well over a quarter of the nearly 
400 architecture students, must 



rank in the top third of their high 
school class in order to enter the 
program. 

Of the 560 Architecture degrees 
granted since the first graduate in 
1950, forty-five per cent of those 
eligible (having served an 
apprenticeship) are registered 
architects. 

The history of architecture 
study at Kent is one of remarkable 
growth. In 1947, the University 
offered two elementary drawing

courses, taught in a room above the 
heating plant. 

In 1950, a four-year program 
was estabUshed with the opening of 
Van Deusen Hall. 

The School of Architecture 
became a five-year program in 
1956, and in 1963 was named a 
member of the Association of 
Collegiate Schools of Architecture. 

A year later, the school was fully 
accredited by the National 
Architectural Accrediting Board. 

Taylor Hall became the new 
home of architecture in 1966, and 
a focal point for the University was 
established. 

At the helm of this progress is 
the legendary patriarch of Kent 
State architecture— Professor 
Joseph F. Morbito. With a 
mile-long list of credits, including 
the prestigious title of Fellow of 
the American Institute of 
Architects, Morbito is the reason 
for the success of the KSU 
architecture program 

Praised by students for his skill, 
drive and accompUshments as an 
administrator, Morbito is also 
viewed on a more personal level. 
The gray-haired mentor was 
dubbed "Papa Joe" by students 
five years ago; the name-and the 
image-still hold. 

"He has a deep concern for the 
school and the students," 
comments one second-year major. 
"He seems rough on the surface, 
but deep down he is really 
sensitive ." 

Another sums him up as "a 
really fine man." 

"I hear weird stories," repUes 
Morbito, "that students are afraid 
of me. ..my door is always open." 

Students in all stages of the 
program agree that the director will 
help all he can when it comes to 
finances. Currently, Morbito is 
helping out-of-state students gain 
resident status to help cut their 
tuition costs. 

Included in Morbito's other 
projects are the fourth-year trip to 
study architecture in Florence, 
Italy, the architecture dormitory 
floors in Koonce Hall, and the 
Synergy One symposiom held 
during the winter. 



The Koonce Hall project began 
last year as an experiment with one 
floor, and has since expanded to 
the top four floors. Residents are 
enthusiastic, one student said. "It 
gives us a chance to share a 
common interest, and relate to 
each other's problems." 

Much of the late-night project 
work associated with architecture 
students goes on at the Koonce 
community. 

A fourth-year student explains 
how much time a project usually 
takes: "Figure out how long you 
think it will take to complete-then 
multiply that times three." 
Another adds, "If you're not 



"In a way, the competition is 
good," one upperclassman 
maintains. "In a few years, we wiU 
be in competition with the 
professors teaching us now." 

Competition against the clock is 
another constant struggle. "The 
pressure is stiff," said one major, 
"and I've seen people get depressed 
over the constant feeling of 
competition." 

Another student estimates that 
30 or 40 per cent of the students 
speed while working on projects. 
"Everybody's fighting to get the 
work done. They're not alone." 

The "pep talk" is Morbito's tool 
for encouraging student 
motivation. "I want to get them 




working on the project, you think 
about it or worry about it." 

A drawing for a project may 
require 40 hours of work; a good 
model up to 100 hours. The 
emphasis in the project is 
excellence. 

"When students miss sleep or 
meals, it's because they want to," 
emphasized Morbito. "Motivating 
students is the goal of our 
professors. ..students only take out 
of the program what they put in." 

Competition is strong between 
architecture students, not unlike 
professionals in the real world of 
design who hesitate to share their 
ideas or plans. Morbito agrees, 
"The first day, I tell my students if 
they don't have a competitive 
heart, they shouldn't get involved." 



through-but I want them to give 
125 per cent. 

"I want to develop students who 
can go out into society and create 
new environments. That is where 
my dedication lies." 

Adds one upperclassman, 
"Architecture is more than walls 
and windows. It's how you design 
your space, it's movement, and 
how it makes you feel-we must 
design for people." 

Morbito's dream for the future is 
to develop a new community in 
Northeast Ohio, planned by 
graduate students and supported 
federally. 

Joe Morbito, the man who 
brought architecture from the 
heating plant to Taylor Hall, has 
undisputable confidence in his 
graphite junkies. "We're in league 
with the big schools."

Home Ec, expands, 
studies daily living 



"Everyone thinks that all a home economics major 
can be is a teacher," said Dr. Theodore F. Irmiter, 
director of Home Economics. 

"Teaching is important-but there are only about 1 80 
to 200 students in home economics education," the 
director said. 

In the other professional areas of home economics 
there are 445 students enrolled in the fields of research, 
public health, dietetics, institution and administration, 
and business. 

Vocational home economics is conducted jointly 
with the College of Education. 

The curriculum is organized into five areas: foods 
and nutrition, textiles and clothing, management, 
equipment, and family living. 

All majors are required to take courses in the five 
areas so that they are well rounded. 

"I always tell our students-when you get out in the 
world be prepared to answer anything," said Irmiter.

department is used.

Spanning all human 



Home economics is not "just 
cookies and aprons anymore," said 
Dr. Theodore F. Irmiter, director 
of Home Economics. 

Puffing on his pipe, the 
bespectacled, white-haired director 
proudly explains that "because of 
the rising interest in 
consumerism—home economics is 
where it's at." 

A graduate student in food and 
nutrition agreed with Irmiter that 
"home economics has a changing 
image." 



"Most people think we only 
know how to cook, and that home 
economics majors are just learning 
to be good housewives-they are so 
wrong." 

"My field is very demanding-a 
great deal of extensive research is 
expected," she said. 

''We have the most 
comprehensive home economics 
school in Ohio," said Irmiter, "and 
while these other schools have 
about 25 faculty members-Kent 
has only 16 instructors." 




However, all the educating is not 
done in the classroom. Irmiter 
explained that a bus load of 
housing class students go to the 
Akron Metropolitan Housing 
project weekly. 

At the project each student is 
assigned to help two families with 
housing problems--but it turns out 
"to be much more," said Irmiter. 

"One student helped refinish a 
family's furniture and other majors 
get involved with the family's 
personal problems," he said. 

"I tell them not to be surprised 
if someone asks them how to cook 
moose liver-it's happened," he 
laughed. 

Another experience some majors 
have is a four-week live-in and learn 
program. Home Management Lab, 
in Nixson Hall. 

In the back of Nixson Hall, five 
or six education majors are thrown 
into a three-bedroom furnished 
apartment; they are expected to 
operate as a family for half a 
quarter. 

"The Home Management Lab 
was an interesting experience. If we 
didn't pull together and act like a 
family — we would have fallen 
apart," said one student. 

"We are stressing an ecological 
approach to human needs," said 
Irmiter. "Our program makes the 
student more flexible and it is 
easier for the student to get a job."

Physics: study of the 



Uri Geller, self-proclaimed 
psychic, visited the campus this 
year and gave exhibitions of his 
unusual powers in the University 
Center. 

Providing entertainment and 
amazing his audience, Geller bent 
rings and snapped stainless steel 
spoons with his mental powers. 

The results were so startUng the 
Physics department began testing 
the articles to find some 
explanations. 

Dr. Wilbur Franklin, associate 
professor of physics is one of the 
few persons in the nation with a 
background and interest enough to 
undertake a study with other 
physicists to determine the validity 
of Geller's proclamations under 
controlled laboratory conditions. 

Working with scientists at 
Stanford Research Institute (not to 
be confused with Stanford 
University), Franklin studied 
Geller's potential to perceive 
drawings hidden in sealed 
envelopes, a number on a die 
shaken inside a steel box, and the 



location of a steel ball in one of 
ten aluminum film cans otherwise 
containing marbles. 

The experiments gave Geller the 
opportunity to pass when he was 
not sure of the answer without 
counting a miss, but the results 
were clearly in Geller's favor- 100 
per cent accuracy in all tests. He 
chose correctly eight times in a row 
in the die and the ball tests, and 
twelve in a row in the drawings, 
reaching odds of one-in-a-trillion 
against pure guesswork. 

The Stanford research team has 
made no definite conclusions other 
than the obvious necessity of 
continuing the observation and 
investigating other psychics to find 
whether super-human minds exist, 
the extent to which the mind's 
potential can be realized, and other 
telenural events such as telepathy 
and precognition. Clearly 
physical in its scope, phenomena 
such as these give physics students 
an incentive to precede in their 
studies and find answers to other 
questions about the nature of all 



types of force. 

Topics of study include optics, 
electronics, force, magnetism and 
many other areas which have only 
been touched upon considering the 
vast number of questions 
remaining unanswered thus far. 

Under leadership of such men as 
Dr. Franklin, these questions will 
slowly be answered providing more 
and more knowledge and 
understanding of things which 
have stumped mankind for ages. 

We all have wondered about 
such questions as 
where the universe goes, whether 
it ends, whether other life exists, 
and where life itself began many 
eons ago. 

Through physics the answers 
may come. Through diligence 
and controlled laboratory 
techniques to minimize error, we 
will eventually know more. 
Opposite bottom, Holography, 
astronomy and the not so easily 
explained phenomenon of psychokinesis,

"Speculation? Sure. Yet is it 
really so incredible? The Earth 
exists. So why no several other 
distant planets in distant solar 
systems. Maybe millions of other 
planets supporting Ufe! What a 
thing to think about! " 

What may be hindering progress 
is the skeptics. As FrankHn 
stated in one of his research 
reports, "Desire for a reasonable 
explanation seemingly governs, to a 
certain extent, one's belief." Even 
with substantial evidence, people 
are reluctant to beHeve what is 
foreign to them. Yet in the end the 
truth must prevail. It hurts 
sometimes, yet we must accept it 
for what it is. 





Nest for creativity 



To one side of the Commons 
there is a strange geometric 
building that exudes a golden glow 
at night. How many times ^oes one 
walk by it without ever knowing 
what goes on inside? 

That strange building, the school 
of Art, encompasses a large 
segment of faculty and students 
involved in teaching, learning and 
creating various forms of art. 

The studio areas of the 
curriculum offer courses in 
painting, sculpture, drawing, 
print-making, graphic design, 
cinematography, and industrial 
design. Courses in the creative 
crafts include jewelry, weaving, 
ceramics, glass-blowing, and 
enameling. 

Majors are also offered in art 
education for those who care to 
teach, and in art history for those 
who might want to write or get 
involved in museum work. 

According to Bernard Weiner, 
professor of art, the learning 
experiences in the school are quite

unconventional, because a student 
spends much of his time in the 
studio-living, doing, and working 
in an artistic situation. 

"We try to provide an exciting 
atmosphere for the development of 
the young artist," he said. 

Weiner said that there has been 
more and more student 
participation in all levels of the 
school. 

"The curriculum is always under 
review," he said. "There is student 
representation on every committee 
that discusses new ideas and 
improvements."

Expression in any media 




Weiner spoke of the obligation 
the school of Art has to the rest of 
the university. 

"We cannot lose sight of the 
necessity to serve, through art, the 
broader university as a whole ," he 
said. 

"We try to make our classes, 
within the limitations of faculty 
and space, open to non-majors who 
are interested in art, as well as to 
our majors." 

"Because the school is living, not 
static, and the students are 
self-motivated," Weiner said, "the 
art school is probably the most 
flexible and unpredictable school 
in the university."

Nurses help others 



Everyone must face the bitterness of death 
sometime-but student nurses deal with this reaUty 
sooner than most students. 

Before experiencing her first contact with death, a 
sophomore nursing student said, "We were shown the 
glamorous, Florence Nightingale type situations-we 
were all out to conquer the world." 

Confronting death head-on, she said, "In the hospital 
it didn't really hit me. When I went to my afternoon 
classes and saw other people living.-then I thought of 
death. 

"Every student must go through these same anxieties 
and doubts," explained Carol Diller, assistant to the 
dean of Nursing. "Student nurses must face up to the 
realities of life that most students don't see until later 
on in years." 

When a nursing student's doubts force her to consider 
leaving the program, the instructors try to find out why. 

"If it is a bad experience-we'd like to see the student 
wait and delay her decision to quit for at least a week," 
Diller said. 

"Sophomore students are amazed at how assured the 
seniors are in facing realities like death-it's just 
something they have to work at," Diller said. 

When a student decides to leave the nursing 
profession, Diller said, "We want the student to have 
some plan in mind. You can't run away-you have to 
move toward something."

while learning skills 




"The hardest part about nursing 
is telling your dad that you're 
going to be a nurse," said a Kent 
State male nursing student. 

Male nursing students represent 
a growing minority in the Kent 
program with 38 men and 728 
women participating. 

Of the 62 students graduating 
from the nursing class in June 
'71 -two were men. In 1972 the 
number of male nursing graduates 
jumped to three. 

Being a male in a field 
dominated by females presents 
many problems. One male student, 
Pat Egan explained, "Nursing is 
great once you've finally convinced 
people you aren't gay." 

Jim Oliver, another nursing 
student agreed with Egan, said, 
"My roommate tells everyone he's 
living with a nurse." 

Why do men want to get 
involved in nursing? "I've got an 
interest in medicine-but can't 
swing medical school," Egan said. 
"Not that nursing is a step down, 
but some people aren't cut out to 
be doctors." 

Another nursing 
student, Dan Cole- 
man, said that men 



have certain advantages over 
females in the program--like 
freedom from pregnancy leaves. 

"Males get promoted faster to 
supervisory positions than women 
because we're around longer," said 
Coleman, referring to the fact that 
many female nurses abandon their 
jobs when they get married. 

Adding another advantage, a 
male nursing student said, "Male 
nurses tend toward specialization. 
For myself, I plan to concentrate 
my studies in administration. 
Whereas for females, nursing is a 
career supplement for the home." 

Male nursing is sometimes 
considered women's liberation in 
reverse. But a second year male 
nursing student, with a degree in 
psychology, said, "I don't want to 
be accepted in nursing just because 
I'm a male." 

He said further, "I want to make 
sure that I have enough on my 
record when competing against a 
girl for the same job." 

James P. DeMarco, assistant 
professor in the school of Nursing, 



doesn't see male nursing as a 
confrontation between the sexes. 
"Men and women nurses 
complement each other," he said. 
Problems arise-they work them 
out together." 

Many of the female nursing 
students agree with DeMarco. "We 
help each other." said one female 
nursing student. "Some things 
women can't do as easily as men, 
such as moving the patients." 

Replying to this, Ron Roberts 
said he felt like a moving van at 
times. "Any time a patient needs 
to be moved-you know who they 
call," he said. 

Male nurses don't just provide 
brute force, according to one 
female nurse, "Male patients 
sometimes find it easier to relate to 
other men." 

With more and more men 
entering the nursing program at 
Kent State, people are just going to 
have to get used to the idea that 
nurses are the "people in white" 
and not the "women in white."

Psychology today 



Of Rats and Men 





After taking the introductory 
psychology class at KSU, many 
students are left with the 
impression that psychology is no 
more than rats, electric shocks, and 
deep, dark secrets. 

However, students who continue 
the study of psychology soon learn 
that it is not just a "soft" science 
with no answers. 

Currently, there are about 850 
majors studying behavioral and 
clinical psychology. Since 1971, 
410 people have graduated with 
B.A. degrees in psychology. 

There is a large amount of 
research involved in psychology 
today. Experiments are run with 



small animals such as rats, snakes, 
pigeons, cats, monkeys and mice. 

According to researchers at 
KSU, rats are used because they 
"provide a reasonable analogue for 
the researcher to study human 
neural development." Rats are used 
extensively to study learning 
development and retention because 
"human and rat brains proceed in 
advancement along the same lines." 

Dr. Richard Vardaris and several 
graduate students have been 
running experiments on rats to test 
effects of THC (synthetic essence 
of marijuana). They have tested the 
effect of the drug on learning, on 
reactions, and on internal 
reactions.

psyched on Psychology 




Besides the animal 
experimentation taking place in 
Kent Hall, there is extensive human 
research. 

All students enrolled in 
Introduction to Psychology must 
sign up to participate in 
experiments run by professors, 
graduate students, and other 
undergraduates. 

One major piece of equipment 
required for many human 
experiments is a polygraph (like a 
lie-detector). Subjects are hooked 
up to small electrodes that record 
heart and respiration rates and 
galvanic skin response. 

On the third floor of Kent Hall 
is the Psychology Clinic. Doctoral 
students in clinical psychology 
work with clients during the 
second year of their studies. 

According to Dr. Horace Page, 
clinic director, 80 per cent of the 
clients are students and the rest are 
from surrounding communities. 

There are about 60 students in 
the nine-year-old doctoral program. 
They work with children and 
adults with psychological problems 
for one year while taking courses. 
They must also finish an internship 
before completing the five-year 
program. 



HPER classes 



Shifting thought from 



"Finding time to take all the one 
hour courses" is the hardest part of 
being a health, physical education 
and recreation (HPER) major, said 
one senior. 

All HPER majors are required to 
take activity courses. These one 



hour courses take three hours of 
class time every week. 

"The 500 majors in our HPER 
program spend only 20 hours of 
their requirements in activity 
courses," said Dorothy M. 
Zakrajsek, chairperson of the 




women's physical education. 

"These courses do more than 
teach the fundamentals of an 
activity," explained Zakrajsek. 
"They involve skill development, 
analysis of the skill-and some 
methodology." 

"Most HPER requirements are 
devoted to building a theory for 
physical education," said 
Zakrajsek. "This deals with 
knowledge from the natural 
sciences--like physiology, 
biochemics, and behavioral 
sciences. 

A good teacher, said one 
badminton instructor, will learn to 
"give encouragement, criticism and 
advice to his students-OK, that's 
good—that's right, play to his 
weakness." 

HPER majors soon learn the 
difference between a coach and 
teacher. As one Kent student 
explained, the coach has 
athletically skilled people to work 
with, while the teacher has to 
"create interest" in sports. 

"You don't have to be a super 
star to be in HPER," said one 
major. "I want to teach HPER 
and that takes more than just 
basic skill."

"There's a trend toward 
individual activities-things people 
can do the rest of their lives," said 
Zakrajsek. "We would like to offer 
training in these activities. 

"We are continually trying to 
update our program according to 
student desires. Take skiing, for 
example. Students asked for the 
course-we provided one. 

"There are always money 
problems with special activities like 
skiing," said Zakrajsek. "With 
skiing we have to charge a S50 fee, 
but the department doesn't get the 
money-Brandywine Slopes does." 

Although skiing is one of the top 
drawing classes during winter 
quarter, karate and ballet are the 
most popular courses spring and 
fall. Modern dance, bowling, tennis 
and ice skating are other classes 
appealing to the average student. 

"The women's department is 
made up of 17 faculty and the 
men's department, headed by Carl 
Schraibman, has about 14 faculty," 
said Zakrajsek. 

"Because most of our classes are 
coed, we pick the faculty member 
who can teach the course the 
best-man or woman," she added. 

Almost 6,000 students enroll in 
HPER courses a quarter. These 
students include majors in 
education, HPER, and just 
interested people.

"He's not going to come--! know he's not going to 
come." There they sat, fingers chewed to the fourth 
joint--sweating-not knowing if they'd make it. 

One stood watch at the window, while others sat 
tensely, poised on the edges of any available furniture. 

Bursting into tears, one sobbed, "I can't take it any 
longer. I'll die-I just know it." 

"Oh God," said another. "My whole being aches for 
the stuff. I've got to have it-where the hell is he?" 

"Maybe if you guys walk around a httle you'll feel

And then it happened. ..the phone rang. ..each

"Yeah?. ..You got it?. ..Well, come on up. ..it sure took 
you long enough," he sputtered into the mouthpiece. 

They looked at each other and smiled. The tension 
subsided and all seemed well again. 

A knock was heard at the door... 

"Yeah" 

"It's your pizza."

Pizza places 




just rolling in the dough $$ 




Ron Pisanello enjoys his work. 
He enjoys it to the point that he 
looks more like Pillsbury's dough 
boy than a successful businessman. 

"I guess I like my pizza," he 
chuckles, "and due to the long 
hours I put in here I usually end up 
having a pizza for lunch or dinner." 

The long day that Pisanello 
refers to is the 12-16 hours a day 
he spends making pizza, sausage 
and assorted other Italian dishes. 

"Sometimes the hours seem a 
httle too long, but there's always 
something to break up the 
monotony," Pisanello said. 

He recalls with a quick smile one 
particular incident that happened a 
few years back. 

"I was showing off for a few 
people by tossing dough in the air. 
Quite a crowd began to gather and 
there I was in my white outfit, 
smiling and just tossing the dough 
high into the air when it came 
down and hit a ladle full of sauce. 
It splattered all over me and 
everybody was laughing to death." 

Despite his pleasant and jovial 
nature, Pisanello is serious when 
the topic of good pizza is 
mentioned. 

"To me, a good pizza must first 
of all taste delicious. To do this 
you must have fresh dough, a good 
crust and the best sauce." 



To insure his pizzas are the best, 
Pisanello combines his 19 years of 
experience with homemade 
ingredients. All his dough is made 
in his own kitchens along with 
most of the other foods. 

"Sausage is probably our biggest 
seller on pizzas because it's 
homemade, with pepperoni and 
mushrooms running a close 
second." 

Pisanello's Pizza averages about 
200 pizzas a night. Combine that 
with subs and other Italian dishes 
and one can understand why 
Pisanello's has seen many 
competitors come and go. 

"We do a lot of business thanks 
to our location. I f it wasn't for the 
University I probably wouldn't be 
here. I like meeting the students. 
They are good customers and the 
ones I employ are good workers," 
Pisanello said. 

Pisanello continued by saying 
that anybody can be taught to 
make a pizza in one night, but it 
takes at least three months to 
become proficient. 

Those who have stopped in at 
Pisanello's know that the man who 
is worth his weight in pepperoni 
must be a good teacher, because 
every pizza is a delicious 
experience. 




Warm and intimate 




Captain Brady's, a restaurant 
and bake shop near the corner of 
front campus, is run by the same 
people who own Hahn's Bake Shop 
in downtown Kent. Known for 
their lunch specials and a variety of 
hot sandwiches, the Brady is 
packed with students at breakfast 
and lunch times. 

The Tudor-styled restaurant has 
a small but steady flow of students 
during the off hours in search of a 
quiet place to escape from the 
rigors of college life, or just to wait 
for the West Main Plaza bus. 

The waitresses are motherly and 
even the food has a home-cooked 
taste to it. 

"The Brady has warmth," said 
one of the customers. "It's not 
sterile like a lot of the franchise 
carry -outs iji Kent." 

"Captain Brady's hot chocolate 
is great early in the morning," said 
one commuter who frequents the 
establishment every day. 

"I can't start the day out right if 
I don't have my Brady roll," she 
added.

With the metal screen door still 
clanging behind me, I stumbled 
into Jerry's Diner and selected the 
nearest shaky stool. 

"Could I have your menu?" I 
asked the flannel-shirted man 
playing the flute on the stool next 
to me. Without losing a note, he 
nodded yes. Rubbing my sleeve 
across the greasy counter, I 
plucked the menu away from the 
sugar bowl it clung to. 

Finding the same Elton John 
news article on the back of the 
menu that I'd read before, I said 
aloud, "I can't believe Elton John 
paid all that money for a lousy pair 
of sunglasses with windshield 
wipers on them." 

With the flute still poised to his 
lips, the fellow next to me replied, 
"Yeah-isn't that something." 

Thinking that I could pass the 
long wait for the waitress in 
pleasant conversation, I asked, 
"Are you a music major?" 

"No," was the reply. He gave a 
few more trills on his flute and 
said, "But my roommate is." 

"Does your moustache get in 
your way when you play?" 

"Yeah, sometimes," he said, as 
he put the flute into a worn, blue 
velvet-lined case. "How come you 
eat here?" 

"I don't know-I guess because 
it's open all night," I said with a 
shrug. "How come you eat here?" 

"Gee, I don't know. The food is 
OK, but look at this crooked 
counter-I hold the side of my plate 
up so the grease doesn't slide in my 
lap." 

I guess I eat at Jerry's Diner 
because it has such a great 
atmosphere," I said with a smirk. 

"Well. ..I come here because it's 
the only place I can play my 
flute."

Kent Food Co-op 



Not just a food store 




At 3 a.m. some people are just giving up the day and 
going to sleep. Others have five or six hours before their 
night ends-but at the Kent Food Co-op people are 
gathering at 3 on Friday mornings at the Unitarian 
Churcn at 228 Gougler for the trek up to Cleveland 
Farmers Market. 

At the market they choose the food they'll 
need--from strawberries to zucchini to rhubarb-bring it 
back to Kent and begin the job of unloading it all from 
the truck. 

Other people pitch in, and everyone can find 
something to do. There's cheese to be cut, boxes to 
unload, orders to weigh and between times fresh bread 
and butter or apples to eat. 

Involvement and sharing are key words at the Kent 
Food Co-op. "We like to think of the Co-op as the 
beginning of teaching people to work together," says 
Sue Lonsdale, organizer behind the Co-op. She doesn't 
think of herself as a leader of an organization-perhaps 
just a cohesive force behind the group action. 

"This is a Co-op, not a food store," says Carolyn 
Henny as she weighs mushrooms for an order. "We all 
work around here. People don't just come in here to 
buy food and then leave. If someone wants something, 
he'll have to help us. There's work to do and we all do 
it," she added. 




91 



Even children are expected to help, and they seem 
glad to be given the chance to really pitch in and work. 
Seven-year-old Alys Henny spent half an hour packing 
eggs, and with only one broken egg in the bunch. To 
Alys' question, "How come these eggs don't all look 
alike?" Carolyn Henny answered, "Well, sometimes 
chickens don't always lay perfect eggs." 

A free dinner is given on Friday evenuigs for all 
members of the Co-op. Here also, people help prepare, 
serve and clean up afterwards-it's an experience in 
sharing. 

The fresh bread at the Co-op comes from the 
Peaceable Kingdom Bakery, located in Kent Natural 
Foods in the Town House on Main Street. 

The Peaceable Kingdom Bakery is a branch of the 
Co-op. Located in the Kent Natural Foods store, the 
bakery provides fresh bread daily. Peter Leon is the 
chief baker.

Working and eating togethier 




Kent Natural Foods and the bakery are just as busy 
on Saturdays as the Co-op is on Fridays. People wander 
in and out munching on the cherry or date-filled 
goodies while they get their groceries together. There is 
also a feeling of co-operative work sharing here. It is a 
place where people help you find what you need, offer 
you a bit of their peanut butter cookie, pack their own 
orders instead of expecting someone else to do it and 
find the time to stop and shoot the bull with others. 

Both the Co-op and Kent Natural Foods are 
non-profit organizations, but even here prices are going 
up. The price of whole-grain flour and other ingredients 
that go into the Peaceable Kingdom's bread are going 
up, which will force the price of the bread up~but Peter 
Leon is proud that his bakery wUl retain the high 
quaUty he demands. 

Larry Durkalski, who works at Kent Natural Foods, 
almost apologetically admits that many of the prices are 
going up, but only when necessary. 

It's a bare-assed, down-home kind of feeling you get 
at Kent Natural Foods-all that's missing is the pickle 
barrel.

Hillel: not just 
bagels and lox 




Getting a rabbi and a house was 
not enough for Hillel members this 
September-they needed a Torah 
too. 

"How much use is a synagogue 
to us without a copy of the written 
law?" Hillel members asked. 

A Cleveland synagogue 
responded to Hillel's need for the 
scrolls just in time for Rosh 
Hashana~the Jewish New Year. 

Three hundred faculty members, 
students, and townspeople 
attended the New Year services to 
celebrate the new acquisition-a 
comparatively large turnout. 

Hillel members began to 
speculate about a year filled with 
well-attended events. They 
anxiously awaited Yom Kippur to 
see if Hillel's sudden drawing 
power would last.

KSU students 



On October 6 it was a bright, 
brisk and sunny day in Kent-but 
that morning Israel declared itself 
on an air raid alert. 

But the situation in Israel was 
unknown to the people pouring 
into the Jewish Student Center to 
celebrate the Day of Atonement, 
Yom Kippur. 

Rabbi Gerald Turk, director of 
Hillel, slowly began morning 
prayers as people continued to 
tip-toe into the main room at 9:30 
a.m. 



Forty-five minutes later, a 
professor arose from his seat and in 
a subdued voice told the group 
about Israel's air alert. 

Rabbi Turk attempted to 
conduct normal services for Yom 
Kippur, but he was soon 
interrupted by Marc Wallenstein, 
president of Hillel. 

Wallenstein explained that he 
had slipped away from the services, 
and defying Jewish law turned on a 
radio to find out more about the 
air alert. 



Forcing out his words, he told 
the group that "Egypt and 
S y r i a . . .at t acked on two 
fronts... crossed Suez and into the 
Golan Heights... Israel caught by 
surprise." 

Rabbi Turk tried to start praying 
again, but he stopped. With 
bewilderment on his face he said, 
"I just can't continue." 

When their amazement wore off, 
courses of action started to form in 
people's minds. Students ran to 
radios and televisions, while others

snatched up passports to fly to 
Israel to work on 
kibbutzim-freeing men to fight. 

Everyone worked together: 
Jews, non-Jews, professors, 
students, and people who would 
have crossed the street rather than 
be seen near Hillel, broke down 
doors to work for Israel. 

Hillel members formed an Israel 
Aid and Information Center, acting 
as an agency for all money 
collected by university students in 
Ohio. 



The goal for the Israel Aid and 
Information Center was ten 
thousand dollars, but forty 
thousand was raised by the final 
cease-fire. 

Israel was pouring millions into 
the war, but blood was also 
needed. All money raised by Hillel 
was used to purchase blood plasma 
kits. 

Those worried about friends 
and relatives or just interested 
people turned to Hillel for the 
latest information. Students at the 



center were manning short wave 
sets and monitoring radio 
broadcasts around the clock 

News of the center trickled out, 
and very soon an NBC camera crew 
interviewed active members on 
campus. 

Across the United States, people 
heard about the young people in 
Kent who were working on two 
hour's sleep and living on bread, 
beans, spaghetti, jelly and an 
occasional shot of booze~all for 
Israel.

Simchat Torah 



Tradition survives thie strain 




With the threat of war still 
hanging over the heads of many 
Hillel members, people wondered 
whether the Jewish Center could 
return to its normal pattern of 
operation. 

Simchat Torah, a Jewish holiday 
celebrating the completion of 
scripture reading in the sacred 
scrolls, is a time of festivity in the 
Jewish religion. 

Even after the strain of the latest 
outbreak in the Middle East , Hillel 
members could still celebrate 
Simchat Torah with the traditional 
gaiety. 

One member said his 
campaigning for Israel "increased 
his desire to get the most out of 
life."

Living and learning 



"People here have names-in 
Engleman Hall no one had 
anything to hold on to but their 
silly paranoia," said Molly Wagner, 
one of the 25 students involved in 
the Living/Learning Community 
(L/LC). 

The L/LC is a family of 
commune-minded students living in 
what used to be called "Pipe 
Alley" in the bowels of Stopher 
Hall. 

This dorm community is an 
extension of skills and philosophies 
taught in courses for the Center for 
Peaceful Change. 

"I wish every dorm was like the 
L/LC," Wagner added. "Dorm 



living should be a personalized 
experience-instead it is a stifler of 
creativity." 

Another member of the L/LC 
family was also disenchanted with 
dorm living. "Musselman seemed 
just like Air Force barracks-cold 
and unfeeling," he said. "1 realized 
that the L/LC was closer to my 
views about living and sharing with 
people. 

"The people in the L/LC seemed 
uniquely friendly-not just a social 
friendliness, but a much deeper 
one," he explained. 

Students wishing to become part 
of the coed community are asked 
to meet with the residents on the 
floor and get to know them.

wall-painting pohcies at L/LC. 

Opposite, residents develop the 
community identity by talking and

gotten to know each other better by 
sharing music, dancing, by putting on 
self-designed costumes, and sometimes 
by painting each others' faces.

Community 

Upon meeting some of the 
people, one student said, "I've 
been exploring the 25 individuals 
who make up the group. There are 
25 different worlds to explore and 
share-25 different meanings of life. 

"The group seems able to tackle 
problems with open 
discussions-each person is willing 
to sacrifice a little of himself for 
the group," he added. 

Involvement with others in the 
community is considered a prime 
responsibility. Many of the people 
on the floor question how much 
interaction is necessary . 

"Do I become an outcast if I 
don't put my books in the 
community library?" asks one 
member. No one is forced to do 
things against his will. 

Other members on the floor are 
concerned with the growth of the 
community. "I don't feel we are 
developing as a community. We 
have a good time living and doing 
together-but we aren't sharing our 
lives enough," said yet another. 

As with any other family there 
are times of joy and then times of 
discouragement. However, as one 
member put it, the L/LC gives 
students the chance to "correct our 
present community ills."

3000 survive spring 




The 59th annual Campus Day 
was "stretched a country mile" this 
year, running from a wet May 1 1 
to an even soggier May 20. 

Said Jerry McMuUen, head of 
ACPB's Special Events Committee, 
"The weather was cold. We were 
sitting up here crying, 'We can't 
have snow on Campus Day.' We 
were prepared to chip the ice off 
the dunking machine." 

"The weather ruined some of 
the activities; however, we still had 
the biggest carnival and the biggest 
alumni turnout ever," Jerry 
continued. 

With the theme Down a Country 



Road, the week's activities began 
with the annual Blue and Gold 
spring football inter-scrimmage, 
with half the proceeds going to the 
Portage County unit of the 
American Cancer Society. 

The Expo '73 air show, 
sponsored by Alpha Eta Rho 
fraternity, highlighted Sunday with 
demonstrations of helicopters and 
skydiving, and antique and 
experimental aircraft displays at 
Andrew Patton Airport in Stow. 

Tuesday featured a Marx 
Brothers Film Festival at the 
Student Center ballroom with A 
Night at the Opera and Go West. 



The Ma and Pa Kent contest, 
satirically replacing the 
once-traditional Campus Day 
Queen, ended a duel with Ky Kraus 
and Kathy Slight becoming the 
winning couple. Competing couples 
dressed according to their own 
interpretation of the Down a 
Country Road theme and 
performed a five-minute talent act. 
The winners rode in the Campus 
Day Parade the following Saturday. 

On Thursday, a sudden 
downpour and temperatures 
dipping to 35 degrees greeted Red, 
White and Bluegrass, John 
Hartford, and the Earl Scruggs

Revue. Uncle Dirty, a professional 
country-western emcee, hosted the 
concert on the Commons. Despite 
the weather, 4,000 bluegrass fans 
huddled together for an evening of 
free country music. 

Other events on Friday and 
Saturday included a bicycle race 
(Brad Loftin taking first place), all 
night movies in Eastway, hot-air 
baUoon flights (compliments of 
Professor Charles MacAurthur, 
Windsor, Conn.), the musical 
comedy Company, a KSU Opera 
Workshop Tales of Hoffman, and 
several happy hours. 

Floats, clowns, unicycles, high 
school marching bands, and the 
KSU Show Band were all part of 
the Saturday parade. Two floats. 
Country Love by Twin Towers and 
Keep a pickin' and a grinnin' by 
Chi Omega and Sigma Phi Epsilon, 
tied for first prize in the float 
competition.

biggest crowd since '70 





Immediately following the 
parade were the carnival and 
songfest. Damp weather did not 
dampen the spirits as music 
provided a background for hot 
dogs, popcorn, candy apples, 
wine-jelly tasting and amusement 
rides. 

Alpha Phi, winner of the 
songfest, featured barefoot country 
girls with checkered bonnets and 
long dresses singing Mariah. 

An Alumni Cafe, running 
concurrently with the carnival, was 
set up on Taylor Hall's terrace as a 
special gathering place for alumni. 
Said Donald Shook, director of 
Alumni Relations, "To our 
amazement, we served 50 per cent 
more than last year." 

The tradition of Campus Day 
began in 1914 with John E. 
McGilvrey, Kent's first president, 
to help boost summer enrollment.

Scruggs &

pick in' an' 
a grinnin 



Rain dampened the audience 
and the cold made it difficult to 
play guitars and banjos, yet this 
weather failed to keep John 
Hartford and Earl Scruggs from 
"pickin' and a grinnin'." 

Four thousand attended the free 
Campus Day concert on the 
Commons that featured "Red, 
White, and Bluegrass," John 
Hartford, and "The Earl Scruggs 
Revue." 

Many people in the audience 
came prepared for the cold and 
rain with blankets, booze, and huge 
sheets of plastic. 

Shortly after "Red, White, and 
Bluegrass" began the five-hour 
concert, most people in the 
audience began clapping and 
dancing to the foot-stompin' 
country-western music and 
continued like that until 1 a.m. 

Despite temperatures dipping to 
35 degrees, John Hartford gave a 
rousing performance in his easy 
banjo style that was greatly 
influenced by Earl Scruggs. 

Said Hartford about his music, 
"I was just thinking the other day, 
it's a combination, like bluegrass 
and rock. So maybe it's grass-rock 
or something." 

Earl Scruggs, who has been a 
legend in country music for 25 
years, topped the concert with 
"The Earl Scruggs Revue." He and 
his sons have been performing an 
amalgamation of country, rock, 
and bluegrass under this name. 

The concert ended with several 
accomplished banjo-pickin' duets 
by Hartford and Scruggs.

New roles for women 




"As long as a woman is prouder 
and happier, to bring a boy rather 
than a girl into the world, it will be 
proof that woman 's victory has not 
yet been won. " 



"That quotation," said a thoughtful young woman, 
"hits the nail right on the head. That's what the 
women's movement is all about." 

Pam Edwards of Kent Women's Action Collective 
(KWAC) added, "Sure we have been poUtically active 
this year, but I think our most meaningful activity has 
been the Sunday CR (consciousness raising) sessions. 

"It is here we come to terms with suppression, and 
study what we can do about it as individuals. It really 
does good things for your head to know that other 
women are fighting for you." 

"We don't always agree on issues," said Linda 
Lazzari. "For example, not all the sisters supported the 
proposed Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). Some of us 
felt that the long hard fight to get laws on the books 



112 








which protect women from adverse working conditions 
would be thrown right out the window if the 27th 
amendment were adopted. 

Nevertheless, KWAC launched an aggressive 
letter-writing campaign, and several members went to 
Columbus on February 7, when Ohio became the 
thirty -third state to ratify the ERA. 




KWAC was also instrumental in organizing a boycott 
of Farah Slacks in Kent. By picketing O'Neil's on 
Saturdays, they brought the plight of 2,000 striking 
workers to the attention of townspeople. The workers, 
mostly Chicanos, walked out on Farah after the firm 
refused to allow them to organize, two years ago. In 
February, the National Labor Relations Board found 
Farah guilty of "union busting" and "discharging 
workers for union activities." Nationally, Farah-slack 
sales were off 15 per cent due to the boycott. 

On campus, KWAC brought the feminist movement 
to the attention of students by speaking to classes 
about KWAC, ERA, and what's taking place in the 
women's movement today. 

In January, KWAC held a dance "to show women 
that they can have a good time with their sisters". 
Lovelace, an all-woman band from Cleveland, provided 
the music for about 100 sisters and brothers. Explained 
one member, "We didn't turn the men away." 

They also launched Women Against Rape (WAR) to 
educate women in some simple self-defense techniques. 
In the U.S., rape leads the rise of violent crimes~up 11 
per cent from 1972. "The most important thing for 
women to realize is that they are not helpless," Pam 
Edwards said. 



Opposite above, members of KWAC join Attica Brigade members 
to picket against Farah slacks at O'Neil's.

Gay liberation 

No longer part 

Kent Gay Liberation Front (KGLF) has helped many 
homosexuals break from their status of a phantom 
population. 

Women and men attending meetings and functions of 
KGLF soon learn the difference between being 
"homosexual" and being "gay." "Being gay means you 
are happy with the sexual lifestyle you choose," said 
one member. 

Gay liberation is a new ideology in society. About 
20-25 years ago there were a few gay organizations; 
however, they were all non-political, apologetic, and 
secret. 

In 1969 the time of war demonstrations, in New York 
City gay Uberation began. One night in June, police 
raided a familiar gay bar. They were surprised to find 
student activists resisting arrest. There was a fight, and 
soon there were 3,000 gay people fighting in the streets. 

The organization formed as a result of this, took the 
name Gay Liberation Front (GLF) from the Vietnamese 
National Liberation Front. 

GLF came to Kent on Dec. 11, 1971. Several gay people 
decided to hold a meeting to include other gay people 
on campus. According to Bill Hoover, co-founder of 
KGLF, 10 per cent of KSU's population is gay. 

Sixty-five people came to the first meeting and 
decided to write a constitution and organizational 
structure. 

At a coming out dance at a local bar, 400 people 
turned out along with the media and the police. 

According to Hoover, police asked him, "Are there 
guys in there holding hands with guys, and girls with 
girls?" "Yes," replied Hoover, "And some of them are 
even kissing." There were no incidents. 

One month after acceptance as a club by Student 
Senate, KGLF still had not received confirmation. Some 
members met with President Olds who, according to 
Hoover, thought KGLF would deter potential 
enrollment. 

KGLF threatened a picket and finally got approval. 

KGLF holds meetings on Tuesdays, women's and 
men's raps weekly, and takes care of business in 
Steering Committee. 

Many pickets have been threatened, and two have 
been carried out. One against a woman in the HPER 
department and one against a bar owner in Akron. "We 
have been systematically excluded from all telephone 
listings and all university invitations," said Hoover. "But 
we have been very sharp about it and never let those 
little discriminations pass by."

Sislcn, a female impersonator, imitates 
Mae West in song and appearance. 
Center, many people attended the 
Halloween Ball dressed in costumes 
complete with sequins and glitter. 



Opposite, after dancing and 
entertainment, KGLF held contests for 
unusual costumes. The categories 
included: best woman dressed as a man, 
best man dressed as a woman, and best 
representation of gay liberation. 




GLF can be an effective medium 
for dispelling the "fag, butch, 
dyke, femme" stereotypes of 
yesterday, according to KSU gay 
people. 

"It's true, " said one member, 
"some gay people still get into 
playing 'masculine' or 'feminine' 
roles. But more and more students 
are just trying to be natural-there 
doesn't need to be a dominant 
person and an obedient one in a 
liealthy relationship." 

However, KGLF members 
occaisionally have fun with 
stereotypes seen by straight 
society. 

At the Halloween Ball sponsored 
by KGLF, there were many men 
dressed as women and vice versa. 

Gay and straight people danced 
to music by Lovelace, an all female 
band, and watched a stage show 
and strip-tease by the Shaker 
Sisters, female impersonators. 

It was an opportunity to "flash" 
in the wake of David Bowie and 
Lou Reed, "cosmic" gay-culture 
entertainers.

'Our goal is to provide 
opportunities for gays 
to socialize in an 
atmosphere of liberation 
rather than oppression/ 




KGLF - opening closet doors 




"Opening closet doors" is a 
phrase used by gay people that 
means bringing gay people into 
society to accept and like 
themselves. 

KGLF formed a phone service 
for about a year to reach gay 
people with problems ranging from 
loneliness to job discrimination. 

Townhall II and Group 
Resources use KGLF members as 
sources for gay people with 
psychological problems. 

Perhaps the largest thrust of 
action in KGLF is concentrated on 
hundreds of talks to reach "closet" 
gays and oppressed gays and to 
educate the general public about 
gay liberation. 




Above left, KGLF and KSU Campus Ministries co-sponsored a 
meeting titled "The Church and Gay Liberation." KGLF enlists 
many speakers dealing with controversial, gay -oriented issues. 

Above, Debbie Core, former co-chairperson of KGLF, speaks to 

many KSU classes and also to high school classes. Many members 

speak to religious groups, police trainees, professional 

organizations, and also on radio and television shows about gay 

liberation. 

Left, many women show gay pride by wearing buttons purchased 

through KGLF. 

Below, at weekly meetings, women and men discuss problems 

arising within the organization and issues concerning gay people 

in general. 

Right, a central theme of gay liberation is that men can have fun 

with other men, and women with other women.

All work and no play 
is not true on campus 



Winter quarter marks the first 
anniversary of KSU's Student 
Center. It gives students a place to 
go to relax and meet one another. 
The old Union was not so much a 
focal point for students because of 
it's small size. 

The Rathskellar provides what 
one student termed "a commons-a 
place to go, that is; a part of the 
University." 

One may go to the Rathskellar 
and see the best local talent for less 
than 50 cents. "Our philosophy," 
said Jack Gottschalk, assistant 
director of Student Activities, "is 
to provide the best talent at the 
cheapest price--we feel that we 
have met this need." 

But not all performers are local. 
Buzzy Linhart, Tim Buckely, and 
Butch Wacks and the Glass Packs 
are some nationally known 
performers who have played at the 
Rathskellar. 

"We purposely lose money on 
some shows because we feel that 
the students should have 
entertainment, and good 
programming should be funded." 




IL 




"If any profit is made, it is 
donated to the Student Center art 
gallery or the music listening 
room," he said. 

Activities vary from Big Chuck 
and Hoolihan's spaghetti eating 
contest to an Oldies but Goodies 



night. "Two students bring back 
the 1950's every Wednesday," 
Gottschalk. explained. 

But what of Eastway? Ten years 
before the Student Center was 
built Eastway was, as one student 
relates, "the Union for the back 
campus." 



Fun as 'big business' 




122 



The volume of business at 
Eastway is down since the opening 
of the Student Center, said Bruce 
Austin director of recreation for 
the University Center. "Before our 
only competition was the old 
Union and that wasn't very big." 

"We've had to change our 
entertainment because business is 
different. We can't compete with 
the Rathskellar because they have 
ideal facihties," he said. 

Eastway used to have a variety 
of activities for students. Beer 
blasts were frequent-as were free 
concerts. "But we have been forced 
to change because of the 
Rathskellar," said Austin. 

Yet there still are many activities 
which Eastway can offer that the 
Student Center cannot. "Sure, 
students can shoot pool or play 
pinball at either place-but Eastway 
has bowling allies and Golf-O-Mat 



(a mechanized golf game), and I'd 
rather come here," said a 
sophomore. 

Another said, "I would just as 
soon shoot pool here because the 
tables are better, and besides 
Eastway has a certain atmosphere 
that the Center can't duplicate." 

According to Austin, an average 
of 250,000 students per year have 
come to Eastway in the last five 
years. "But beer sales are down by 
75 per cent and by 10 P.M. the 
place is empty." 

Eastway was the only place on 
campus open around the clock 
until recently, when, said Austin, 
"Students just stopped coming. 1 
don't know why, but it is probably 
a result of the entire economy 
being down." 



Where do the students go and 
why? "1 would rather go to the 
Rathskellar," said one freshman, 
"because there are too few people 
downtown and all they do is watch 
TV." 

"It's easier to meet people here 
and besides that, it's ours," said 
another freshman. Yet another 
said, "The music is better here and 
at Eastway people are always 
walking through--it's very 
distracting." 

To be sure, one could not 
truthfuUy say that KSU lacks 
entertainment for students. As one 
senior said, "Hell, if they have any 
more activities on campus I'll 
probably move back into a dorm."

Fraternities and Sororities 



Enter the new Greek 




126 



with brand new image 




Enter the "New Greek". 

Fraternities and sororities, after 
suffering a decline in recent years, 
are again on the upswing, with a 
new image to fit the changing 
times. 

Not a return to the nostalgic 
innocence of the fifties, but a new 
social awareness-a new aspect of 
college, another way of viewing 
life-is evident in the Greek system 
at KSU. 

In the past, Greek organizations 
at Kent and throughout the nation 
were recognized as sanctuaries of 
the privileged-reserved almost 
exclusively for sons and daughters 
of the upper middle class. 

When the socially-conscious and 
poUtically active student arrived on 
campus in the late sixties, Greek 
membership, fraternities in 
particular, took an ominous 
plunge. 

In a desperate reaction, many 
fraternities revised their pledge 
standards and relaxed fees, in 
hopes of rebuilding their ranks. 

"There's a new attitude present 
now," says one KSU brother. "The 
frats are more open, appealing not 
to the rich, but to the average 
student." 

Costs of membership and living 
in a Greek house, in most cases, are 
cheaper than living on-campus. 

Yet, the Greek system at Kent 
does not share the popularity 
found at other schools. The fifteen 
fraternities and nine sororities at 
KSU comprise only six per cent of 
the campus population. 

The diversity and dravdng power 
of other campus activities have an 
effect on Greek membership, but 
are not seen as a problem. 

"People here don't feel 
pressured to join a frat or 
sorority," says another Greek, 
adding, "It's good that there are 
enough other things going on to 
offer the student a choice. At some 
schools, going Greek is almost a 
necessity for a social life." 



127 



Parties and pranks are perhaps 
the most visible aspects of Greek 
life, but are not seen as the most 
important reasons for belonging. 

"The key to the Greek system 
goes back to when it was first 
founded," said Jane Bilewicz, 
director of Fraternity Affairs. 
"Brotherhood and sisterhood are 
the basic purposes for being a 
Greek." 

Also listed as important 
functions of Greek life are service, 
community involvement, and 
academic development. 

Most Greek organizations 
support a national philanthropy, 



such as aid to the blind or to 
cardiac victims. 

Collectively, the Greek system 
sponsored a bathtub pull last year 
which netted nearly $1500 for a 
cancer drive. 

Other projects include ecology 
programs, voter registration drives, 
and volunteers to the 
King-Kennedy Center project in 
Ravenna. 

Academic achievement is 
another objective emphasized in 
the Greeks. Most chapters require a 
pledge to hold and maintain a 
certain point average. 



Some organizations have 
established study and tutorial 
programs. In addition, many 
chapters offer scholarships through 
national organizations. 

"The image of the stereotyped 
Greek is a problem, although it was 
probably earned somewhere along 
the way," said Bilewicz. 

Greeks also see the problem of 
being labeled and categorized, 
although some members feel the 
"New Greek" has a wider 
acceptance from independents in 
the univeristy community. 

"When people don't know us or 
don't visit the house," says one 



It's a place to come home 




128 



sorority member, "it's easy for 
them to form judgments based on 
the old image. When they meet us, 
the stereotype disappears." 

KSU sororities are more 
formally structured and selective 
than the male counterparts, but 
both boast a wide variety of 
backgrounds and interest among 
members, and stress that 
conformity is not a goal. 

One frat man says, "You can 
keep your individuality as part of 
the group. The organization tries 
not to force you into the group, 
but to develop your own 
personality and individuality." 





Far left, students who live in fraternity 
houses off campus have an opportunity 
to fix their rooms with stereos and 
mattresses on the floor to make them 
more comfortable to study in. 

Left, sorority members often hold large 
dinners for guests in order to make a 
homier atmosphere. 

Above, women living in sorority houses 
are able to lounge before bed in their 
own living rooms while entertaining 
friends. 

Below, sisters often throw surprise 
birthday parties for other sisters.

The rush procedure is more 
structured in sororities than in 
fraternities, but the girls emphasize 
that it's a two-way street. The girls 
who rush must choose who their 
sisters will be, just as the sisters 
choose future members. 

The feared pledge rituals and 
hazings of the past are also 
different for the "New Greek". 
Men tal and physical harassment of 
pledges has almost disappeared. 

"It's a different type of 



discipline-based on respect, not 
abuse," said one Greek. "We don't 
demand as much from a pledge as 
we used to. He may be lower on 
the ladder now, but we still make 
him feel part of the group." 

The group feeling of a Greek 
organization is extended through 
its house. The fraternity or sorority 
house is a home, not just for those 
living there, but for all 
members--even alumni. "It's 
something to come back to," 



explained one member. "You're 
always welcome." 

Housing about fifteen Greeks on 
the average, the "home away from 
home" is a bond between the 
brothers or sisters. Like a family, 
the house may have an occasional 
"sibUng rivalry", but underlying 
the quarrel is a deep sense of unity 
and close friendship. 

In marked contrast to the new 
relaxed image of Greeks are the 



130 



all in the spirit of giving 




seven Black fraternities and 
sororities at KSU. In general, these 
groups follow more rigid 
procedures and demand more from 
their pledges than do their white 
counterparts. 

According to the leader of one 
Black fraternity, strict discipline is 
used to build unity within the 
organization and to instill a 
life-long sense of brotherhood 
among its members. 

One mark of the Black Greek 



that few members will forget or 
remove is the brand-a permanent 
reminder of their brotherhood. 

One fraternity claims that 95 per 
cent of its chapter's members wear 
the brand, and the practice is now 
spreading to some of the other 
Black frats. 

"It's much more than just a 
social group," says one member. 
"It's something to be taken 
seriously, something to devote 
yourself to for life." 



Opposite, during the Christinas season 
sorority sisters decorated a real tree 
before going home for the holiday and 
also held a gift exchange. 

Above, members of Sigma Tau Gamma 
get caught up in the streaking spirit and

Administration building. 



131 



Unity stressed by Black 



Most of the Black Greek 
organizations are highly selective in 
regard to their pledges. Most 
pledges must wear external signs of 
their status, such as a large wooden 
insignia, to distinguish themselves

Some pledges may be required 
to march in line, shave their heads, 
or carry around bricks. 

In general, the Black pledges are 
expected to conform in their 



actions, or as one brother describes 
it: "to make them seem one." 

Of the many pledges who begin, 
few become active members. The 
feeling is that brotherhood must be 
earned. 

The involvement of the Black 
Greeks in the "secret society" 
aspect of Greek living is generally 
more complex than in the white 
Greeks. One member explained. 



"Not even my girlfriend knows 
what goes on at our meetings." 

Black Greeks are also widely 
involved with community service 
projects, particularly in the 
Skeels-McElrath district of 
Ravenna. 

Division between the Black and 
white Greeks is wide, but attempts 
are being made to bring the groups 
together for common projects and

"She is my principle confidante, my alter ego and 
when I get tired or discouraged, she is the one that 
takes the gaff--she is just terrific in every way." 

This is how President Glenn Olds describes Kent 
State's first lady-Eva Olds. 

Her thoughts come smoothly and rapidly-they flash 
across her face and are punctuated with an appropriate 
body gesture. 

Living in the president's century-old home on Main 
Street, Glenn and Eva have attempted to decorate the 
university- owned house so it "reflects us," says Eva. 

A student walking into the Olds' home would be 
struck by the assortment of treasures hung on the wall, 
displayed on tables and stashed in odd nooks 
throughout. 

Holding up a bird's nest that was a gift from a friend, 
Eva said, "I Uke natural things around me. 

"Well actually, I really like a bit of whimsy around 
me-it helps me from getting uptight and these things 
help other people to break through the barrier of a 



public figure." 

A blue-bottomed sand box of fine, white sand is 
perhaps one of Eva's most known trademarks. "Sand 
boxes are fun for everybody," she says. 

Found in the Hving room, the sand box is part of 
what Eva calls "sand pile therapy". 

"I worked with sand pile therapy at the Jung 
Institute in Zurich," she explains, "and it is sort of like 
dreaming out loud." 

Next to the sand box are some of the many plants 
the Olds' keep in their home. 

"I love plants," she said. "I like anythmg to do with 
growing-whether it's the growth of plants or of 
people." 

Admitting that she and Glenn love people, Eva said, 
"My husband and I come on strong because of our 
natural personalities. 

"It would take a pretty unhappy person who could 
be forceful enough to say, 'I don't want your 
enthusiasm. ..your hopes.. .or your expectations.'"

Although Eva finds Kent State has a friendlier 
atmosphere than it did three years ago, she says, "I still 
find a great lack of outgoingness, but I recognize that 
this probably stems from my interpretation." 

Eva and Glenn said they tried to reach out to the 
student body, but "I have not felt that my openness 
and disposition have been met by a comparable 
response," said Glenn. 

"I've made it a fetish about saying hello to students," 
he added. 

"What I did in the first few days at Kent," Eva 
explained, "I knew would determine what image people 
would have of me. 

"If people see a picture of someone or hear a 
remark-they get an image." And as Eva put it, "Some 
people forget that this is just one thing in the total 
personality. 

"I come on strong about my Letters from Eve and 
what I thought about life," she said. 

Letters from Eve is a five part solo drama, written by 



Eva, that deals with philosophical questions of life. 

She said her favorite lines from the play are, 
"...something within me knew that the Grace of God 
was the capacity of new beginnings-the possibility of 
the giant step." 

Eva is not just the president's wife-she is an artist 
and an individual and she expects to be treated as such. 

"I've been mto women's lib for a long time-way 
before it was popular," she explained. "So I've gotten a 
good deal of practice avoiding being a second rate 
citizen." 

With a B.S. in broadcasting and a masters in speech, 
Eva is now studying transactional analysis, 
transcendental meditation, tai chi (a form of karate), 
and dramatic interpretation of literature. 



First family of KSU 



humanize presidency 




Left, Glenn Olds welcomes opportunities to speak with students, 
get their views, tell his ideas and get feedback. 

Above, Eva Olds' personality shines in all types of situations, 
from informal talks at her home to formal dinner receptions for 
administration officials. 

Right, Glenn and Eva. Eva says, "When I first walked on this 
campus, I said, 'I like the feel of it.'" Glenn and Eva enjoy a walk 
on front campus in the spring. 







Glenn also remains in touch with the classroom by 
teaching one freshman philosophy course a quarter. 

It is Glenn's love for students that mfluenced his 
leaving the United Nations, because above all else "I am 
an educator," he said. 

Glenn does admit missing the "global feeluig" he had 
at the U.N. And he also regrets that he doesn't "have 
the time for the international leadership I expected to 
give Kent." 

Nevertheless, Glenn has liked being president. But he 
is troubled by the "prospect of the faculty's collective 
bargaining. 

"I think the president will increasuigly become a 
manager of labor relations and this does not interest 
me." 



What interests Glenn is developing the student body 
at Kent into "whole" people. 

"I beUeve that one needs both depth of specialization 
and breadth of exposure," said Glenn. 

"I think the University should make students have an 
appetite for the whole body of knowledge-including 
the body, mind and spirit." 

Glenn also accuses the University of being "too 
inward-looking and too vertically oriented in its 
curriculum. 

"I have been trying to change this," asserts Glenn. 
"And I'm viewed by some of the conventional faculty 
as kind of an enemy of the tradition. 

"But I like the challenge of turning the University 
around," said Glenn.

Well actually, I like a lot of 
whimsy around me- it helps

-Eva Olds 




He is not worried about decreasing enrollments or 
finances. "My feeling is, if we are doing something of 
excellence here-then people will be here," he 
explained. 

Although a little pessimism can creep into a Glenn 
and Eva conversation, their overridmg positivism 
usually triumphs. 

"Once when I was feeling very discouraged," said 
Eva, "I asked Glenn what would he do if everything in 
the world we had tried to do was gone." 

"And he told me," she said, "that hewouldkeep on 
rowing the oars-and I know that is what he would do. 

"And I guess after I had gotten over being angry and 
hurt, and had written my poems about it," Eva added. 



"I suppose I would say, 'OK Glenn, move over-I'm 
taking one of the oars."' 



Their experiences range from commencement to Eva's dramatic 
debut, with Sunday Softball if time permits. He enjoys the chance 
to talk directly to the student body. She values free time that she 
can spend at home, relaxing with her famous sandbox. 




Michael Solomon 



Student 'in 




concert' 




"I laughed-I just sat in utter disbelief and lauglied." 
This was Michael Solomon's reaction to the Kent 
concert committee three years ago. 

"The committee was paying an agent SI 500 for 
booking the groups, and that was all he did-I had to 
laugh to keep from crying," Solomon explained. "When 
I joined the committee, the first thing I did was can the 
unnecessary, over-priced agent, and did the booking for 
groups myself," Solomon said. 

"Getting Elton John here for spring '72 was just 
lucky," Solomon added. He mentioned that the Elton 
John concert was the first profit making concert Kent 
had in years. 

Solomon estimated that about 10 to 12 thousand 
dollars was lost on concerts the year before he joined 
the concert committee. Now, about 20 concerts later, 
the concert committee can clear as much as S4,000 per 
concert. 

After the Eltoa John box office success, Solomon 
said he became committed to bringing quality 
entertainment to the university. Solomon's concert 
committee is under the auspices of the All Campus 
Programming Board (ACPB). 

Tlie total amount of receipts and disbursements for 
ACPB last year totaled one half million dollars. The 
concert committee provided the greatest chunk of 
ACPB financing, Solomon said. 

Although the booking for Elton John was done 
without the help of an agent, for Solomon's later 
concerts he worked with Belkin Productions. 

"Instead of Belkin working as an agent for us-we 
work as equal partners," Solomon said. "And that is 
why we have been successful-we respect Belkin and 
they respect us." 

Working with Belkin for the most part, Solomon's 
committee has brought big name groups like Yes, Pink 
Floyd, James Taylor and Santana to the campus. Also 
under Solomon's direction, Frank Zappa and John 
MacLaughlin, Seals and Crofts, Slia Na Na, Clieech and 
Chong and the Doobie Brothers have been brought to 
Kent. 

Without the help of another student, Keith 
Raymond, Solomon said he never would have won 
Belkin's respect and received recognition from 
university staff and students. 

Solomon has been concert chairman and Raymond 
has been co-chairman since their sophomore year 
together. They've grown with each other, learning when 
to give in and when to stand up to the estabHshment~in 
order to get the shows on stage. 

Both Solomon and Raymond will graduate this year. 
Solomon must finally hang his phone up and end his 
countless conversations with rock star agents. 

Raymond, the quiet man in charge of production, 
will never put up with sneering rock stars' road crews 
again at Kent. 

When Solomon hangs up his phone for the last time, 
he will leave a professional and businesslike system for 
concert committees in the future. 




"If anything, I have learned to 
walk slower," Michael Solomon 
said about the day-to-day hassles 
he encounters in the entertainment 
business, as ACPB concert 
chairman. 

Working closely with Solomon 
for three years, co-chairman Keith 
Raymond said he, too, has had to 
slow down and not let University 
rules get in the way of a show. 

"Keith and I are in the 
entertainment business and no one 
on the University level knows how 
to deal with the situation," 
Solomon pointed out. 

Agreeing with Solomon, 
Raymond said, "It seems a place 
that is supposed to be teaching you 
how to think sometimes can't 
think for itself." 

Both Solomon and Raymond 
said they have estabhshed some 
rapport with University staff. They 
attribute their success at pulling off 
concerts to "knowing the ropes" 
and knowing when to ask for 
permission and when not to ask for 
it. 

Raymond and Solomon cited 
the Physical Education Department 
as having responded the most 
favorably to the concert 
committee. 

"At first, the Physical Education 
Department had a negative attitude 
toward concerts~but we changed 
that," Solomon said. He explained 
that he couldn't "really blame 
them for not wanting their 
facilities abused—which does 
happen." 



Above, Michael Solomon talks with 
Keith Raymond as they both set 
up the stage for tlie Spirit and 
Lighthouse concert in the Student 
Center ballroom. 

Right, Solomon calmly solves 
another hassle backstage. A 
member of the Student Center 
staff has just told him there is no 
power for that night's show. 

Far right, Solomon and Raymond, 
chairmen of the ACPB concert 
committee, take a breather before 
the beginning of a show. 




' I have learned to walk slower' 



"Now, the Phys-Ed Department 
is very co-operative and helpful in 
regard to the use of the gym," 
Solomon reported. "I guess we just 
proved to them that we were 
responsible." When the concert 
committee used fork lifts to bring 
in three-tons of Pink Ployed 
equipment onto the gym floor, 
Solomon admitted that his good 
relations with the Phys-Ed 
Department could have been 
severed. 

"You can imagine what the 
repercussions would have been if 
we had made a hole in the middle 
of the basketball court," Solomon 
said. 

Raymond said that after the 
committee realized it's failure to 
check Pink Floyd's equipment 
poundage was a mistake, "we 
started asking questions 
first — before we acted." 

Solomon put down all of these 
problems as part of his learning 
process because, "when we started 
we didn't know anything about 
concerts at all." 

Now, Solomon asserts, "We have 
our system together and concerts 
just sort of fall into place." 

However, while concerts have 
been easier to organize because of 
an experienced committee, the 
excitement that the shows eUcit is 
not as great, as in the past, 
observed Solomon. 

"Concert sales are still very 
good, but people are not into 
concerts the way they used to be," 
Solomon said. "I haven't 
pin-pointed the reason, maybe 
people are tired of concerts or 
maybe it is just my imagination." 

Raymond didn't quite agree 
with Solomon saying, "Music tastes 
still tend to be the same, perhaps 
students don't have the money to 
go to all the concerts." 

The ACPB concert committee 
deals with large sums of money, 
but neither Solomon nor Raymond 



are paid for the arrangements they 
do for concerts. 

Raymond commented on his 
lack of pay," For the amount of 
work we do there is a lot of per- 
sonal satisfaction~but no financial 
bonuses. Our personal satisfaction 
is seeing 7,000 people enjoying 
what we've planned." 

Solomon agreeing with 
Raymond said, "There is a kind of 
magic to the whole situation in- 
volved with concerts-that magic 
makes us keep doing it and putting 
up with the hassles." 

Solomon's and Raymond's 



responsibilities on the committee 
have brought them in contact with 
many well known artists. 

However, Solomon explained 
that most rock stars are on a 
demanding " 40 day tour with only 
a few days off and they are either 
"too tired or too bored to talk 
with students." 

"The not — so — famous 
performers are easier to talk with," 
according to Solomon.

KODACHROME 

Kodachrome 

They give us those nice bright colors 

They give us the greens of summers 

Makes you think all the world's a sunny day 

I got a Nikon camera 

I love to take a photograph 

So mama don't take my Kodachrome away. 

When I think back on all the crap I learned in high school 
It 's a wonder I can think at all 

And though my lack of education hasn 't hurt me none 
I can read the writing on the wall. 

If you took all the girls I knew when I was single 
And brought them all together for one night 
I know they'd never match my sweet imagination 
Everything look worse in black and white.

Doobie Brothers 

"Most college audiences are 
too intellectual and analytical to 
let themselves go," said John 
Hartman, a drummer with the 
Doobie Brothers 

However, Hartman said he 
was "pleased with the response of 
the Kent audience." 

Tyran Porter, bassist for the 
Doobies, differing with Hartman 
said, "People in concerts will 
respond to anything, but these 
same people on the streets will stay 
in their own shells." 

Another Doobie, P a t 
Simmons said, "When an audience 
has to sit in straight chairs, with a 
fear of standing up and getting in 
someone's way—this inhibits 
people's actions." 

The All Campus Programming 
Board brought the Doobie Brothers 
to Kent fall Quarter.

Four years following the May 4 
tragedy, John Peach, campus police 
detective, reports there is a new 
spirit of friendliness on campus. 

"In the four years I have served 
on the force, the student body's 
attitude has changed-for the 
better, "Peach explained. "During 
the months of April, May, and 
June of 70 through 72, there was 
real hostility in the air. Now, that 
problem is diminishing." 

"Perhaps we are making some 
progress showing the student body 
that our main goal is to assist and 
help them--not hinder progress," 
said Peach. 

What is the largest problem 
facing campus poHce in 73-74 ?The 
unanimous answer is, "theft." 

Patrolman Terry Morris said 
many thefts occur when students 
are careless. While discussing this, a 
student came in to report a new 
pair of shoes taken from her locker 
while she was in gym class. "I guess 
I should have locked it," the 
student said. 

Robert Malone, director of 
campus security, said crime is 
down this year, but he declined to 
give figures on this year's theft 
"because sometimes things are 
reported stolen when they are 
merely misplaced." 

He explained that this often 
happens with equipment such as 
projectors. "They are reported 
stolen," he added, "but later we 
are informed that some professor 
used it without signing the 
projector out properly." 

Malone came to Kent this 
September to head a department 
operating on a $617,000 budget, 
nearly 20 per cent less than the 
year before. 

Malone brings 21 years of law 
enforcement experience to the 
force. He hopes to implement a 
new recruit testing program next 
fall involving psychological testing, 
rigorous physical examinations 
and background investigations of 
applicants. 



Working to cover over 400 acres of 
university property, campus police must 
use squad cars, foot patrols and 
watchmen shifts, all coordinated through 
dispatchers, to hold crime rates down. 






Officers serving the KSU campus must have a 
minimum of 400 hours of police cadet 
training-the state minimum is set at 250 hours. 

Also, KSU officers are encouraged to participate 
in in-service training programs, either on the 
college level or in courses set up by the 
department. 

Malone was unable to say how the KSU pohce 
stack up against other forces. He did point out 
that his department consists of 31 sworn 
personnel, seven civilian employes and five patrol 
cars. 

In comparison, the Kent city police has 26 
sworn personnel, ten civilian employes and six 
patrol cars. 

Campus police have full authority on University 
property, on roads bordering the campus, and are 
deputized to direct stadium traffic. 

All sworn officers, uniformed or plain 
clothesmen, wear two things: a necktie and a fully 
loaded .38-caliber regulation revolver, with 12 
rounds of ammunition. 

"As long as we have armed robberies-and as 
long as there is evidence some students have 
weapons, it would be stupid for us to be without 
our guns," said Malone. 

Only three rapes were reported from September 
through February. However, this does not mean 
that sexual offenders are rare on campus. 

One campus policeman said that the motivation 
behind many crimes stems from sexual 
maladjustments. 

"For example," the policeman explained, "if a 
guy habitually shoplifts for only left-handed 
gloves, I guess that is his sexual fetish." 

Patrolman Morris was called upon to check out 
a report of a suspicious person in a girls' dorm. 

Arriving at the dorm, Morris asked the girls who 
phoned in the complaint a number of questions. 

"What color car did he drive ?" Morris asked. 

One girl replied that it was an old beige car. 

Another swore it was a new yellow car. 

And another said it was small and gray. 

Morris thumbed through a magazine trying, 
without success, to locate a car resembling the 
suspect's car. 

Later, when he delivered the report, he mused, 
"It doesn't sound like anyone I've dealt with 
before. Some of the guys are often chronic 
problems~and we get to know them." 

Morris said his uniform used to bother him. "I'd 
walk into a room and talking would stop," he 
explained. "The uniform sets you apart-that's for 
sure. 

"You have to be careful when in uniform," he 
added, "because people watch you for everything, 
and if you do something wrong-they don't forget. 

"Meeting people, talking to people, and trying 
to understand people," says Morris, makes up for 
the problems of the uniform. 

"There is one thing all the police have in 
common," said Morris. "We really care about the 
people we deal with, and our community."

Health Center: 
OK, say Aahhh. 




'Dorm food is bad-look out 
for freshman English--and don't go 
to the Health Center," are the first 
three things freshmen hear from 
upperclassmen, according to Dr. 
Jay Cranston, director of the 
Health Center. 

"I believe that most students 
don't know what services the 
Center has available to them," he 



further explained.. 

"Staffed by eight doctors and 
twenty-one nurses, the Health 
Center treats approximately 377 
people per day," said Cranston. 
"We're geared toward general 
medicine and treat anything from 
colds to broken legs. 

"Besides our clinic, the Health 
Center operates an infirmary for 



in-patient service around the clock. 
We have a capacity on the second 
floor of the Center to put 36 
people in beds," the administrator 
pointed out. "We also have 32 
extra beds if the need arises," he 
said. "I think it's important to note 
that any students needing to stay 
in the infirmary receive all services 
free, including their medication."

Far right, many students have throat cultures taken at the Health 
Center to check for colds and viruses. 



"Along with this, we have a laboratory which does 
routine work, such as blood counts--at no cost to the 
patient. We offer physical therapy if necessary and have 
an X-ray department which is also free," Cranston said. 
"The Center also operates a pharmacy which sells 
medication at less than retail cost, by purchasing 
through state contract. 

" We have a full time gynecologist on the staff, clinical 
psychologists in the Center daily, and an orthopedic 
surgeon at the Center once a week," Cranston added. 

"Confidentiality, a reason students shouldn't shy 
away from the Health Center, is not only our intent, but 
our practice," declares Mrs. Galizio, clinic head nurse. 
"All our records are strictly confidential. They are not 
released to anyone without written consent from the 
patient." 

"We've been trying to humanize our health services," 
Cranston said. "Taking care of diseases is not 
difficult-taking care of students is." 

"I see my role as much more than just a nurse. If a 
student comes in and wants someone to talk to or feels 
a little homesick, then that's what I'm here for," said 
one nurse with a smile. 

Paula Fishman, a patient in the Health Center for 
over a week, said, "I've been made to feel really 
comfortable here. The nurses are great-they come in all 
the time just to talk. They'll bring you a snack whenever 
you want it." 

Apparently Fishman has no regrets about going to the 
Center because she said,"The attention I've gotten from 
the doctor has been really good. I couldn't ask for 
better service."

A surprising number of dorm 
students participated in 
Homecoming '73, Jerry McMullin, 
chairman of the event, reported. 

McMullin said he was pleased to 
see dorms involved because "all the 
power wasn't then thrown to the 
Greeks." He said that Terrace Hall, 
winners of the Bowman Cup, 
"really went bananas." 

The Bowman Cup is awarded to 
the group showing the most spirit 
in Homecoming activities. A 
scavenger hunt, carnival, 
Volkswagon-stuff, pep rally and 
spirit chase were events in which 
groups racked up theii' spirit scores. 

"We started out participating 
just for fun, but after we started 



winning, people got really 
excited," said one Terrace Hall 
resident. 

Homecoming '73 wasn't just a 
competition for the Bowman Cup, 
however. For many it was a time to

The Alumni Band for 
Homecoming '73 was "something 
I've always dreamed about," said 
Julia Stanford, a twirler with the 
Kent band 15 years ago. 

Julia Stanford and Nella Plough 
were returning twirlers heading up 
the Alumni band for this year's 
Homecoming half-time show. 

Giving up her baton to become a 
tiiird grade teacher, Julia Stanford 
was united with Nella Plough, her 
twirler-mate of 15 years ago, 
througli the Alumni band. 

"When we arrived at Kent the 
morning of Homecoming, Mr. 
Jacoby asked us to try twirhng 
again," Stanford said. 

"We only practiced for 40 
minutes," Stanford explained. "I 
really felt weird out on tiie football 
field-twirling must be one of those 
things you never forget." 

Plough agreed that being out on 
the field was unexpected, "We just 
watched each other and tried to 
put on a good show." 

"For a few ininutes I felt young 
again!" exclaimed Stanford, Kent's 
first and last band queen. 

Stanford said that as a student 
she was "always nervous when 
twirling on the football field. Now 
I'd go out there and have a good 
time." 

Stanford, Plough and other 
Alumni band members agreed it 
was good to meet people they 
hadn't seen since college. 

Ron Lucien, playing the same 
instrument in the Alumni band 
that he played in college 18 years 
ago, observed that the Kent band 
has "a peppier style than we did." 

"It's good to see Kent back on 
its feet from a losing football team 
in the past and the May 4th 
tragedy," Lucien said. Another 
Alumni band member, Liane 
Sickels of the class of '52, said she 
enjoyed being back at Kent. She 
observed that "Kent is different 
now--they win games."

For others, time to stuff a bug 



Attempting to break the world 
Volkswagon-stuff record of 34, 
about eight groups gathered at the 
Student Center Plaza to stuff and 
squeeze their friends into 
Volkswagons. 

Jackie Noll disclosed Fletcher 
Hall's secret method. "First we 
took ail the seats out except the 
driver's seat. We couldn't take that 
out because the floor of the car 
would fall out." 

"Then we put a row of people 
crunched on the bottom, with 
another row on top of them. 
Finally, we took tall, thin people 
and stuffed them on top." 

This technique proved to be 
successful. After piling out of the 
Volkswagons, Fletcher Hall and 
Terrace Hall tied for first place 
with 33 persons each. 

A hubcap vdth a Volkswagon on 
top was the prize. 

Liz Hershey of Terrace Hall said, 
"Everyone wanted to stuff people 
in wherever there was a space."

A dynamite team . 



by Charlie Stricklen 

Nineteen seventy three was a 
banner year for Kent State 
football. Head Coach Don James 
and his Golden Flashes were victors 
nine times, including a 21-7 "Super 
Saturday" triumph over BowHng 
Green, a game which many thought 
would decide the Mid-American 
Conference championship. 

But later in the season, Miami, 
which had stormed through its first 
eight games without a loss, came to 
be ranked 17th in the nation to 
face Kent's 19th-ranked Flashes for 
the MAC title. 

The contest was appropriately 
tagged "Super Saturday 11" and 
more than 27,000 fans-a record 
crowd-jammed into Dix Stadium 
to peer through a driving snow as 
the Golden Flashes made their bid 
for Kent's second straight 
conference championship. 

But it was not to be. Miami's 
powerful defense-ranked No. 2 in 
the nation-stymied Kent State's 
"high octane" offense and the Red 
skins returned home to Oxford 



with a 20-10 victory-and the Mid- 
Am title. 

The loss was a crushing blow to 
the Flashes and to their fans. It had 
been a valiant effort by the 
Flashes, though. They had been 
pitted against a Miami squad which 
went on to finish the season 
undefeated (10-0) and was ranked 
15th nationally at the season's end. 

The Flashes were able quickly to 
bounce back after the devastating 
defeat, but the fans never 
recovered. A week after losing the 
championship, the Flashes travelled 
to Toledo where they ripped the 
Rockets, 51-16. 

When the best Flash team in 
history (9-2) returned home for 
their final game the following 
weekend, they ran onto the field to 
the cheers of almost no one. By 
game time, there were only 3,870 
fair-weather fans, many of whom 
left before the game ended. 

Kent handily won the contest, 
beating Central Michigan 28-7 
despite the lack of support-which 



prompted Coach James to lament, 
" I'd like to take this team 
somewhere where they would be 
appreciated." 

Even more disappointment was 
to come. 

Players, coaches and fans alike 
expressed disillusionment when a 
well-deserved post-season bowl 
invitation never came. 

Thus, a team which had almost 
completely re-written the Kent 
record books and had outscored its 
opponents 299-131, finished the 
long season unheralded and 
seemingly unappreciated. 

Spirits were lifted somewhat 
when Coach James announced that 
he would definitely be back next 
year--dispelling rumors that he 
would leave to take a higher 
paying, more prestigious position. 

So even with the loss of 16 
seniors from this year's squad, 
there is reason to be confident that 
the Golden Flashes will again be in 
the thick of the title race in the 
coming season.

Kent of fense-- 
they do it 



by Frank Beeson 



Passing accuracy and running 
power best characterized the 
versatile Kent State offensive squad 
during the 1973 grid season. 

The well-toned Flash offense 
churned up 38 touchdowns 
through the 11-game season and 
finished the year atop the 
Mid-American Conference in total 
offense. 

Before the season, rumor had it 
that Kent's Power-I Triple-Option 
offense would be hard to contend 
with and the Kent State Golden 
Flashes made the rumor a reahty. 

Quarterback Greg Kokal 
completed 133 passes in 234 
attempts for an impressive .568 
average, the best in the MAC. 

The sophomore quarterback 
sighted sure-handed Gary Pinkel 
and speedster Gerald Tinker as his 
prime receivers. Pinkel led the Kent 
receivers with 36, while Tinker was 
but a catch behind at 35. 



Offensive versatility was 
supplied through the running 
efforts of tailback Larry Poole and 
fullback Mike Mauger. 

Poole, breaking through the 
defensive clutches, ground out 1010 
yards for the season while Mauger 
bulled his way to fortune at Kent, 
totalling 515 yards in 102 carries. 

Tlie offensive line built Kent's 
running and passing attack. 
Without its efforts the KSU 
ground-gainers would have been far 
less productive. 

Setting up the "wall of 
concrete" were tackles Dave Korns 
and Bob Adair, guards Rick 
Gembar and Jon Hyde, and center 
Henry Waszczuk. 

For the Kent offense it was a 
year of success and frustration. 
Success when one considers that 36 
individual and team offensive 
records were broken. Frustration 
when one considers a 9-2 season 
and nothing to show for it but a 
scarred helmet and a number two 
spot in the Mid-American 
Conference final standings. 



Things go bad on the field but you've got to get up 
and fight back-thaVs what life is all about'

"Jack Lambert 




by Bob Baptist 

"Defense! Defense! Defense!" 
The thundering chant was a 
famiUar one in Dix Stadium this 
past football season--a chant that 
surely inspired the Golden Flash 
defense and spelled doom for the 
opposing offense. 

For in the 1973 campaign, the 
KSU tacklers limited other teams 
to a meager 1 1 .9 points a game, 
second only to league-champion 
Miami in Mid-American Conference 
scoring defense. 

Five times during the season 
Kent opponents were held under 10 
points in a game. Two 
V i c t i m s - - L o u i s ville and 
Marshall-could manage but a single 
field goal. 

Anchoring Kent's defensive 
eleven was big No. 99, Jack 
Lambert, a frightening figure on 
any football field. The 6-5, 
215-pound senior again established 
himself as the finest defensive 
player in the MAC, gaining a 
first-team berth on the all-league 
team and following that up with 
third-team honors on the 
Associated Press All-America 
squad. 

Making the linebackers' j obs that 
much easier were the efforts of the 
monstrous Golden Flash front 
four. Runners who ventured into 



the huge front four of Walt Vrabel, 
Larry Faulk, Marv Elliott and 
Tommie Poole allowed only three 
yards a play, something opposing 
coaches would think about when 
putting together their game plans 
for next year. To add to their 
worries, three of the four starters 
will be returning. 

The lone sore spot in the Flash 
defense was the secondary line 
where head Coach Don James tried 
a number of players in an 
attempt to shore up the obvious 
weakness. Kent was victimized by 
only five touchdowns through the 
air, second best in the MAC, but 
was vulnerable to the short 10 and 
15-yard tosses, completions that 
added up in the end, keeping alive 
many opponents' drives. 

Despite the loss of the 
conference crown, the Kent 
defense this year performed as well 
if not better than in the 1972 
championship year. And prospects 
for next season continue to look 
bright. 

Six starters return to bolster the 
stingy defense, second in almost 
every MAC statistical category last 
year. With this personnel and 
several new faces, the defense may 
very well lead KSU football to the 
top of the Mid-American 
Conference once again.

Football Saturdays begin 
on Sunday night 



Coach Don James takes his team 
to the movies every Sunday 
night-but not for enjoyment. 

Football Saturday's begin 
Sunday night with films of the 
previous game for the Golden 
Flashes. 

"When I get knocked down," 
said defensive tackle Walt Vrabel, 
'i think to myself, 'Uh oh--what's 
the coach going to say Sunday 
night when we watch the movies?'" 

For tight end Gary Pinkel, the 
Sunday night movies mark the 
beginning of the coming week's 
mounting pressures. 

Pinkel explained that for him 
pressure starts a slow upward trend 
Sunday and continues until 
Wednesday. 

"On Thursday I sit in class and 
bite off all my nails," said Pinkel 
"And on Friday and Saturday 
morning I have to sit and shake my 
leg up and down" to relieve the 
increasing nervousness. 

Taking a deep breath the boyish 
faced Pinkel said, "Saturday is the 
pressure plug that is pulled out of 
you-and then the tension starts all 
over again Sunday night." 

Tommie Poole, defensive tackle 
approaches football differently 
than Pinkel. "I just go out and play 
ball-getting psyched or worrying is 
wasting energy," Poole said. 

A rather jovial, but slightly 
cocky individual, Tommie Poole 
bitterly remarks that "Football 
hasn't prepared me for life. I'm too 
small for pro-ball--and so where has 
seven years of football left me?" 



Tail back Larry Poole disagrees with his brother 
Tommie on football preparing him for life. "Football 
has taught me how to endure anything," Larry said. 

The "cheerleader on the squad," according to Larry 
Poole is Pinkel. "He's pretty inspirational. Whenever I 
score a touchdown Pinkel is the first one to 
congratulate me." 

Coach James has told the team that "A football field 
is a classroom for character building." 

Agreeing with James, line backer Jack Lambert said, 
"Football teaches you self-pride and respect for your 
opponents."

60 minute game demands all 



Football players lose strength 
during the season, so Donald D. 
Lowe, head athletic trainer, keeps 
the Flashes on a weight program 
designed "to help the players 
maintain their strength." 

"An athlete expends a lot of 
energy playing football, but the 
muscles aren't being developed," 
explains Lowe. 

Exercising every day on weight 
machines in the Stadium training 



room, the Kent football team 
builds up their "strength and 
agility" all year. 

"If a player doesn't do his leg 
exercises," Lowe points out, "then 
he has to run laps." 

"Coach James and I believe leg 
strength helps prevent knee and 
ankle injuries," continued Lowe. 
"The team's leg strength is part of 
the reason we're a fourth quarter 
team." 



"Our weight program also helps 
to develop bulk--the more padding 
a player has means more protection 
from injuries," said Lowe. 

All the Flashes' ankles are taped 
by Lowe and his ten assistants 
before practice and games. 

"Most injuries in athletics are 
ankle sprains and muscle pulls," 
explains Lowe. "We can't do much 
about accidents, but we can keep 
the players in good condition." 




182 




"Taping limits the range of 
motion of a joint without 
interfering with the player's 
movement," Lowe added. 

Using adhesive and elastic tape 
"cuts down the severity of a fall," 
said Lowe. He estimates that the 
Flashes use 48 miles of tape each 
season. 

Injured players and 44 team 
members have to be taped for a 
game, Lowe said. "Anyone else can 
be taped if they want to--there are 
usually 70 to 80 guys on the 
team." 

Not just ankles and knees 
require taping, however. Fingers, 
hands, elbows, shoulders and even 
foreheads of some players need 
extra support. 

Lowe and his assistants start 
taping each weekday at 2 p.m., 
having the team out on the field at 
3:45. From beginning of practice 
to late afternoon, Lowe observes 
the team with special attention 
paid to injured players. 

"I make sure the guys are doing 
what they're supposed to do and 
avoiding what they're not supposed 
to do," Lowe said. 

"Taping helps to get a player 
back into play by limiting the 
motion of an injured joint," Lowe 
points out. 

We tape if the pain is not too 
severe or if the competition won't 
hurt him in the future. 

"But taping is not even one-third 
of the job," says Lowe. Treatment 
for injured players takes up a great 
deal of Lowe's day. 

Players get three to four 
treatments a day from the training 
staff. They use various modalities 
in treatments: whirlpools, ice 




massage and ultra sound are used 
to treat injuries. 

"Ultra sound equipment takes 
electrical waves and transforms 
them into sound waves providing 
intense heat," according to Lowe. 

When a player gets hurt on 
campus he goes to the Health 
Center "like any other student," 
said Lowe. "But I always like to 
know about what happened to him 
because it might effect his 
performance--and I might be able 
to help." 

"This was a good year as far as 
injuries go," says Lowe. "One 
reason for this was luck, but the 
other is our good conditioning 
program." 



Top, series, Kent Golden Flashes 
work out on the exercise machines 
in the Stadium training room. 
Before practice and games the 
players get a thorough taping from 
Donald D. Lowe, head athletic 
trainer, and staff.

Handicapped students 



Disabled, alone 



"We can understand the feeling 
of sympathy for our disabilities, 
but when it goes as far as pity-we 
want no part of it," said Janet 
Postle, a lifetime wheelchair user. 
"We're not invalids, there's just a 
different mode to our mobiUty." 

The handicapped want ramps 
instead of curbs and steps, and 
private facilities their chairs can 
enter. They just want 
consideration, according to Postle. 

For the third year, Disability 
Month was organized to give 
students an understanding of the 
barriers involved in the use of a 
wheelchair. Students were given a 
chance to adopt a temporary 
handicap, either using a wheelchair 
or wearing a blindfold. 

Participants in Disability Month 
soon learned that "the biggest 
problems are getting into 
cafeterias, getting drinks of water, 
getting over curbs, and using the 
Johns when the doors are too 
narrow to get a chair through," 
Postle said. 

"We just want to show others 
the problems that being 'different' 
can bring," Postle explained. 
Belonging is also a big problem, 
said Postle. "The able-bodied form 
stereotypes and have pity for us, 
both of which are hard to 
overcome." 

"We're being confined to a 
minority and have little influence 
to bring about the changes we 
need," Postle said. 

The answer lies in numbers, 
explained Postle. Society is set up 
in a non-handicapped manner 
because the majority of the people 
are such, but with support of 
people, both handicapped and 
able-bodied, the objectives may be 
changed. 

Students for MobiUty is a 
campus organization for this end, 
set up in order to get things done, 
because one person cannot change 
things alone.

DEAR JOHN 

Most architectural barriers 
I've learned to take in stride, 
Tliose steps, those curbs, those 

revolving doors 
That make me stay outside. 

I can live with water fountains 
That are level with my ears; 
And I have never used a phone booth 
In all my many years. 

But when it comes to restrooms 
It really is a blow- 
It's knowing that when I've gotta 
I ain't gonna get to go. 

I burn the rubber off my wheel 
I can hardly wait 

But my chair is thirty inches wide, 
The John door, twenty-eight. 

I've thought about reforming 
To change my wayward ways- 
To become a model of deportment 
For the remainder of my days. 

But when I get to heaven 
And sit before the gate, 
Will St. Peter say, "You're 

thirty inches wide. 
Our John door twenty-eight"?

Strenuous feats look easy 



As one observes the young men 
and women of the gymnastics 
teams, one is struck by the seeming 
effortlessness of even the most 
difficult of feats. Exercises on the 
bars, rings, floor, horse and balance 
beam appear to be done with such 
ease that most people never really 
know the amount of work that 
goes into each stunt. 

The women practice not less 
than 20 hours per week, assisted by 
coaches Janet and Rudy Bachna. 

Ms. Bachna, who coached the 
1960 Olympics in Rome, and was a 
judge at the 1962 World Games in 
Prague, explained that despite the 
long hard hours of work out, the 
14 women of the team have 
maintained a median cumulative 
average of 3.4 

The tryouts for each Saturday 
meet are held on the previous 
Thursday night. Five women are 
selected to compete, and one is 
selected for a non-competitive 
exhibition. 





Gymnasts strive to attain

discipline, control of form 



One of the problems faced by 
the teams is the absence of any 
kind of scholarships. The women 
are allocated a budget of $500, and 
must raise the rest of the funds on 
their own. One of the methods 
used this year was the sale of 
buttons asking for support of 
women in sports. 

An assistant coach explained a 
problem with the men, "We have a 
group of men on campus who are 
not on the team for various 
reasons, including injuries and lack 
of time. 

"They would have been a boon 
to the team," he added. 

Last year the women had 59 
straight wins, but were defeated by 
Clarion. This year, they triumphed 
over Clarion, winning a shot at the 
Collegiate Nationals in Wisconsin 
on March 15 and 16, for the fourth 
year in a row. 

"Three of our girls have 
competed in the Nationals for the 
past three years," said Ms. Bachna. 

Mr. Bachna said the men, who 
have a total record of 60 wins and 
20 losses, and a record of 10-3 this 
year, will be competing in the Lake 
Erie Inter-collegiate Gymnastics 
meet on February 22 and 23. The 
league consists of nine schools, 
including Northern, Central, 
Eastern, and Western Michigan, 
Bowling Green, Miami, Cincinnati, 
Slippery Rock, and Kent. 

"The men on the team have 
come on strong this year," said 
Bachna. "They're favored to win. 
We've got a bunch of good guys 
that really work hard."

American Football 



Finishing with a record of 5-2, 
the Kent State Rugby team had 
one of their best seasons, according 
to Bob Beck, Rugby Club 
president. 

Comparisons are often made 
between rugby and football. But 
rugby is a different kind of sport 
than football, rugger Tipper Short 
said. 

He explained that, "As for 
preparing yourself for the gatnes, 
you do as much as you feel you 
need to do to keep in shape. 
There's no regimentation and no 
one tells you what to do like in 



football." 

Rugby is tough and it's brutal, 
but it's not cutthroat 
competition," added Lenny 
Marthng, captain. 

Supposedly, rugby came about 
in 1823 at Rugby College, England, 
when William Ellis disregarded the 
accepted rules of soccer to pick up 
a bouncing ball and carry it over 
the goal. 

Scoring in rugby and football is 
about the same, but play in rugby 
carries little resemblance to its 
stepchild football. 



Rugby is played on a field up to 
1 10 yards long and 75 yards wide. 
There are 40-minute halves with a 
rest period between. 

At the start of each half, play 
gets underway with a place-kick 
from the mid-field line. Play in 
rugby is constant. There is no halt 
of play after a tackle. 

Once play is underway the ball 
can only be advanced by running 
or kicking. It may only be thrown 
to the side and rear. No blocking of 
opposing players is allowed at any 
time.

There are various reasons why men play rugby. 
Rugger Middy Hopps described it best when he said, "I 
like the contact, the exercise and keeping in shape, the 
comradeship on the field, and the marvelous parties." 

Scoring is done in three ways in rugby. A "try" is 
similar to a touchdown in that the ball is carried over 
the goal line. However, it is not scored until the ball is 
touched on the ground. A try counts four points. 

After a try, the scoring team gets a conversion 
attempt, taken opposite the point at which the ball is 
touched down. If the conversion kick is good, it receives 
two extra points. 

If a man carrying the ball doesn't think he can 
carry it over the goal line, he may attempt a drop-kick, 
over the crossbar between the goal posts. This is worth 
three points. 

One spectator expressed her impressions of rugby 
when she said, "Those games are like organized chaos. It 
looks as if a player could get killed out on that field. 
But after you've seen one game, you're addicted. You 
won't want to miss another one!"

"Rugby is an on the field, off 
the field sport. Fifty per-cent is 
playing the game and fifty per-cent 
is going out after tlie game and 
drinking a few kegs of beer with 
the other team," said Lenny 
Martling, captain of the rugby 
team. 

The fraternal aspect of rugby is 
continued up to the end of the 
game. The winning team forms a 
double line through which each 
member of the losing team runs, 
shaking hands. Then, the losing 
team lines up and receives the 
winners.

Karate 



Learning to defend 
the mind and body 




Martial arts, especially karate 
and kung-fu, have experienced a 
tremendous surge in popularity in 
recent years, and Kent State 
University is no exception. 

The 1973-74 year found eight 
martial arts clubs opera tiong here, 
offering training in Kwan Ying Do 
kung-fu, judo, jiu jitsu, aikido and 
various styles of karate. 

Training is rigorous, painful and 
time consuming, but students of 
the arts all agree that the benefits 
one receives, both physical and 
spiritual, are well worth the effort 
one puts forth. 



Mary Martin and Pat Etcher, 
members of the Kwan Ying Kempo 
Club, said they began training in 
the style of kung-fu "primarily for 
reasons of health and movement." 

Dedicated Karetka (students of 
karate) have a deep and abiding 
love for their art, according to KSU 
Karate club member, Ron Shaw 
who holds a Sho-dan (first degree) 
black belt. 

"One does not practice karate; 
one lives it," the Masters have 
often said. 

The martial arts philosophy of 
calmness and confidence is the 



antithesis of aggression and 
inhumity: "It is better to run than 
to hurt; it is better to hurt than to 
maim; it is better to maim than to 
kill; it is better to kill than be 
killed." 



The Creed of Karate states, "I 
come to you with only 
karate-empty hands. I have no 
weapons, but should I be forced to 
defend myself, my honor or my 
principles; should it be a matter of 
life or death, of right or wrong, 
then here are my weapons-my 
empthy hands." 



203 



"When I decided to take up 
karate, I thought it was going to be 
so neat because I'd get to learn 
how to bust ass with one kick. I'd 
be able to wipe out guys like in 
those Charles Atlas ads. After a 
couple of weeks my muscles felt 
like they were dead and we hadn't 
even gotten to the fighting part 
yet. I was beginning to wonder 
what there was to it." 

The newcomer to KSU's self 
defense class would probably agree 
with Bob Lund, an education 
major who found the road of the 



martial arts a hard one. 

Students who have started their 
training under the flurry of 
imported karate movies and the 
popular TV show Kung Fu will 
probably be expecting an 
Americanized school that the 
sensei instructors in Kent want to 
discourage. 

Traditional discipline, 
meditation, and form are stressed 
here. The serious students will 
want to concentrate on themselves 
most of all-building the mind and 
the body, discovering the soul.

Karate training sessions, that may last up

Sweat ran from Master Feeman 
Ong's brow as he slowly drew a 
razor-sharp, double-edged sword 
through his clenched fist. 

The audience of Kent students 
and townspeople interested in 
Kung-Fu held their breaths in dead 
silence--unt il Master Ong 
unclenched his fist and showed he 
was unharmed. 

Master Feeman Ong, 46, holds a 
9th degree black belt and is the 
only authorized instructor of 
Kung-Fu or Shoalin System in this 
part of the world. 

He explained his sword feat was 
possible because of a program 
designed to make his hand resistant 
to cuts. 

However, most Kent students in 
the Kwan Ying Do Kenpo club 
learning the oriental art of 
Kung-Fu concentrate on basic 
fighting forms rather than sword 
demonstrations . 

The basic fighting forms, called 
katas, may contain 70 or more 
steps. Kicks, lunges, punches, 
blocks, sweeping leg movements, 
and low body stances continuing 
for up to a half hour characterize 
the dance-like katas.

Swimmers take MAC 




It was in the six lanes at the left 
that the Golden Flashes of Kent 
State University captured the 1974 
Mid- American Conference 
Swimming and Diving 
Championships and quaUfied three 
swimmers and two relay teams for 
the NCAA Championships at Long 
Beach, California. 

A combination of hard work, 
team togetherness and a 
never-say-die spirit brought the 
Flashes the title in a year many 
thought would see a new team 
ascend to the top spot in MAC 
swimming. 

Head Coach Tod Boyle, who has 
won league crowns in both of his 
years at the Kent helm, summed up 
the successful season as "a 



tremendous team effort. 

"We didn't have the depth of 
some of the other MAC teams, but 
the guys came through when they 
had to," he said. "Everybody 
contributed." 

A record-breaking total of 455 
points paved the way for a 14-point 
margin of victory over runnerup 
Miami in the conference meet and 
assured Boyle, co-captains Jim 
DeVincentis and Don Dunkle and 
the rest of the Flashes of their 
third straight MAC Championship 
Trophy. 

Kevin Scanlan was named 
outstanding swimmer of the MAC 
meet after winning the 200, 500 
and 1650-yard freestyles and 
participating on the victorious 



800-yard freestyle relay team. 

Dunkle, who virtually clinched 
the MAC title for Kent with his 
win in the 200-yard butterfly, was 
honored as the outstanding senior 
swimmer in the MAC by the Miami 
Aquatic Club. 

Scanlan set conference records 
in the 500 and 1650-yard freestyles 
and qualified for the NCAA meet 
in the 500. The Flashes' 400 and 
800-yard freestyle relay teams also 
set MAC marks as well as 
qualifying for the nationals. 

Jeff Horvath (100-yard 
breaststroke) and DeVincentis (50, 
100 and 200-yard freestyles) also 
qualified for the national 
championships in their events.

Although they did not 
participate in a dual meet until 
January 11, the Kent State 
swimmers began the task of 
defending their Mid-American 
Conference championship back in 
October. 

Under the watchful eyes of 
CoachBoyle, the tankers ran, hf ted 
weights and went through a variety 
of other workouts. But swimming 
was the main thing. 

Three hours a day, four or five 
days a week, Kent's tankers toiled 
in Memorial Pool, perfecting the 
techniques and building up the 
endurance that would bring them 
yet another conference crown in 



1974. 

There were plenty of 
good-natured complaints, as 
evidenced by the chorus of groans 
that usually followed Boyle's 
announcement of the next drill. 
Some swimmers even had their 
own suggestions for practice. The 
coach's standard reply to these 
ideas was a stern "Get your butt 
moving!" 

Even though the swimmers made 
no secret of their dislike for 
practice, each one of them knew it 
would pay off in the end. 
Everything in practice was geared 
toward the end of the year and the 
MAC Championships.

And all the work paid off. 

The Flash swimmers splashed 
their way through an almost 
spotless dual meet season, a 
close loss to powerful Ohio State 
marring an otherwise perfect slate. 

The excitement generated at 
practically every meet was 
tremendous. The clapping, cheering 





spirits above, below water 



crowd complemented the 
swimmers' own spirit. Everybody 
had the same goal in mind-to be 
the best in the MAC. 

"For us to win, everybody had 
to pull for each other and put the 
success of the team ahead of 
everything else ," said Boyle. "We 
had to have a total team effort to 



win the conference meet." 

Boyle got that and more. Team 
spirit was at its peak during the 
three-day meet and the cheering 
spectators were not far behind in 
exuberance. 

"C'mon, push, push, push!" 

"Move it! Move it! Move it!" 

"DeVo! DeVo! DeVo!" 



Spurred on by the cheers, Kent's 
swimmers banded together and 
accomplished what they had set 
out to five months earlier. And 
when it was over, the crowd and 
swimmers were still cheering. But 
this time it was all the same chant. 

"We're Number One!"

brighter skies and a chance to don

of the season. 

The Flashes committed nine 
errors in the three-game series 
against the Falcons, losing two of 
the contests. 

Similar results were to follow 
throughout the dismal season, as 
Kent managed only 1 1 victories in 
31 games and finished in the cellar

Not much joy in Kent 




A good, young Kent State 
pitching staff and .400-plus hitting 
through most of the season by 
senior first baseman Jack Holl 
couldn't offset sloppy defensive 
play as errors were the major 
contributing factor in many of the 
Kent setbacks. 

A mid-season hot streak (six 
victories in a row) gave the Flashes 
a modicum of hope, but they 
dropped their last six decisions to 
cap a mediocre season which 
included embarrassing 17-0 and 
20-4 defeats. 

Holl finished as the leading 
hitter for Kent with a .385 average, 
followed by sophomore pitcher 
Mike Patrick with .308, 
right-fielder Scott Sullivan with 
.307 and third baseman Bob Baker 
with .289. 

The top pitcher was freshman 
Gary Kulbaga with a 3.97 
earned-run average. He was 
followed by junior hurler Joe 
Jaksic (4.27) and senior left-hander 
Mark Erdelyi (4.41). 

Erdelyi had the best record on 
the staff with a 3-2 slate and 
sophomore Randy Gonter finished 
2-2.

Truitt leaves position -- 




The 1973-74 season marked the 
end of an era in Kent State 
basketball. The eight-year reign of 
Head Coach Frank Truitt came to a 
close. 

His resignation was inevitable. 
Fans cry for a winner and Truitt's 
teams had not won. He produced 
losing seasons six times in eight 
years. A 14-10 record in 1968-69 
and 13-11 in 1970-71 were Truitt's 
only winning campaigns.

team loses a "nice guy" 



But eight generations of Golden 
Flashes have won in a personal 
sense. They experienced the 
guidance of a selfless man 
dedicated to serving the University 
and its students. 

But the tooth-and-nail business 
of intercollegiate athletics just 
won't slow down for a man who 
cares about such trivial things as 
character, integrity, and teaching 
basketball players a little more 



than how to play basketball. 

Winning has become the 
all-important goal in college sports. 
"Whether you win or lose" is now 
the creed. Gone are the days of 
"how you play the game". 

What will Frank Truitt do now? 

"I'll just try to be of service to 
others like I've always tried to be. 
As long as I'm around young 
people I'll be excited every day of 
my life." 



Truitt will stay at Kent State as 
golf coach and physical education 
instructor. "I've raised my family 
in Kent for eight years. I want them 
to have a home to come back to." 

The records will show failure 
under Frank Truitt's name, but the 
records won't show what he is as a 
man. 

As one former player said, "A 

guy like him shouldn't have to do 
this for a Hving."

Young 



After a promising start, Frank 
Truitt and his "young but 
experienced" Golden Flashes 
basketball team suffered a 
disastrous 1973-74 season. 

They finished 9-17 overall and 
equalled their worst Mid-American 
Conference record ever, finishing 
1-1 1 for the fourth time. 

In a season marred by Truitt's 
resignation and the controversy 
surrounding it, the Flashes virtually 
were out of the conference title 
race by mid-season. 

Truitt's charges defeated only 
Western Michigan in the first round 
of conference play, but the worst 
was yet to come. 

Kent's only victory in the 
second half of the season, a 
non-conference encounter, was a 
gratifying one. An 85-70 trouncing 
of backyard rival University of 
Akron served as small consolation 
amid the frustration of an 
atrocious campaign. 

Although disappointments 
greatly outnumbered triumphs, 
there were some successes . 



220 




team suffers losses 





Bradley Robinson, KSU's 6-7 
center, copped the Mid-American 
Conference rebounding title and 
was ranked third in the nation on 
his way to setting an all-time 
single-season rebounding record. 
The big Akron native averaged 16.2 
caroms a game while scoring at an 
8.8-point clip. 

Denny Odle, a 6-6 transfer 
student from Clemson, took over 
at forward and was a leader among 
the Flashes. He scored 12.6 points 



a game in spite of seeing limited 
action part of the season. In the 
last six games Odle scored 127 
points, averaging 21 points per game. 

Forward Fred Walker was a 
consistent contributor in both 
scoring and rebounding. The 6-7 
sophomore averaged 10.9 points 
and 8.4 rebounds for the season. 

The guards were the reliable 
Rich Gates and hot-shooting 
sophomore Tom Brabson. 

Gates, although bothered by a 




sore lower back for several games, 
managed to score 13.2 points a 
game, tops on the Flash squad. 

Brabson came on strongly after 
spending considerable time on the 
bench early in the season. The 6-5 
sharp-shooter was one of the top 
scorers in the late games and 
finished with a nine-point norm. 

Junior Doug Shell, a starter in 
the backcourt at the outset, lost his 
assignment to Brabson, but added 
defensive strength and superior 
ball-handling when the situation 
called for it. 

The only senior on the young 
squad. Randy Caipen, found 
himself relegated to a substitute 
role much of the season, but 
provided depth at forward. 

And the "Big Z"~Jim Zoet-the 
seven-foot freshman from Port 
Perry, Canada, turned in some 
encouraging performances at 
center. 

So the young Flashes can add a 
year's experience to their resumes 
and wait until next season. The 
familiar "wait 'til next season", 
however, has special meaning for 
Kent State this year. Stan Albeck, 
an innovative, experienced coach 
with a record of turning losers into 
champions, has accepted the 
challenge to coach at a university 
known for its mediocre basketball 
program. He'll head the cage 
program next season.

Even though it's 
against the ruies 



Ice hockey--the world's fastest 
team sport, a grueling, violent, 
vigorous expression of man's 
physical capabilities. And so it is to 
Coach Don Lumley and his Kent 
State Clippers. 

Conditioning is the key to a 
successful hockey team, and 
Lumley stresses endurance in his 
tiring 90-minute practices held 
three times a week. 

"The game is so fast," maintains 
the handsone young native of 
HaiTiilton, Ontario, "even in the 
best possible physical condition, a 
player will only last 90 seconds 
going all out." 

Rotating different squads of 
players to provide time for 
recuperation, Lumley generally 
utilizes three offensive lines 
(comprised of a center and two 
wings) and two pairs of defense 
men. Practice drills are interrelated, 
because on the ice, the five players 
must function as a coordinated 
unit. 




Lumley describes his workouts 
as "demanding" but justifies his 
actions, citing that the game is 
made up of three twenty-minute 
periods. Therefore, "if a player 
doesn't work hard and 'overskate' 
in practice, making it to the third 
period in the same condition as the 
first is difficult." 

He added, "Mistakes are made 
when people get tired." 

No scholarship offers lure 
hockey players to Kent; money is 
not available. Lumley, a graduate 




of Boston University on a hockey 
scholarship, coaches the team on 
his own time-without pay. All 
other team-related personnel, such 
as the trainer and physician, are 
also volunteers. 

Functioning as a club-not a 
varsity sport, the Clipper team is 
self-supporting; ice time is rented 
for all games and practices, and 
team income is derived primarily 
from home gate receipts 

Efforts have been made to 
recognize hockey as a varsity-status 



sport, but that possibility is not 
forseen by Lumley in the next five 
years. 

The Kent hockey crowd is 
dedicated, enthusiastic, and vocal. 
Since a hockey score can change 
radically in seconds, the fans 
loyally remain until the game's 
end. 

The only disappointment 
Lumley expressed about the 
audience is the low turnout of 
students at the games. 



226 



Figh tm 




The Clippers, Lumley 
maintains, concentrate on avoiding 
penalties-although some players 
desire more action. "We don't play 
a hitting type of game; we like to 
skate." 

Protective helmets are worn by 
all players during games, in 
compliance with NCAA rules. The 
body contact in hockey is 
sometimes more personal and often 
just as dangerous as that in 
football. This year the Clippers 
were plagued by the loss of several 
leading scorers due to injuries. 



Lumley tries to play all the team 
members in the games so that win 
or lose, the team spirit is "super". 
He sees his players as a tightly-knit 
group that likes to party. One 
exponent of the team solidarity is 
graduate student, starting 
goaltender Rae Metz. Metz, from 
Stratford, Ontario, wears the No 1 
jersey on the Clipper squad, and 
represents the "last line of 
defense"for the team. 




The aspect of violence is the 
game's most apparent feature-the 
crowd loves it. Swinging sticks and 
knock-down body-checking are 
readily visible and add to the flash 
and excitement of the sport. 

"Because of the speed and 
non-stop action of the 
game, "Lumley relates, "it looks 
more violent in the stands than it 
does on the ice. Fans know that 
the ice and boards are hard, but the 
players are prepared to take a few 
lumps." 




Goalie-last line of defense 



Rae Metz's specially designed 
blue and gold face mask is part of 
the 35 pounds of equipment worn 
during a game. This uniform, 
coupled with his skill as a goalie, 
protects him from the speeding 
shots directed his way. 

As goalie, he is the target of the 
opposition— the man who is 
constantly on the firing line. 

"You play as hard as you can to 
stop every shot, "said Metz. 
"Sometimes the breaks go your 
way and sometimes they don't. 

"If a goal goes in, I shoot the 
puck back down the ice and chalk 
it up to experience. You can't 
concentrate on mistakes." 

Metz, who has been playing 
hockey for 19 years, came to Kent 
before the Ice Arena was built and 
has played four years with the 
Clippers. 

As a more experienced member 
of the team, he feels a 
responsibility to help the younger 
players. 

"When I can help-I help. I've 
been here a long time, and I know 
what's expected," Metz said. 

He described his teammates as 
"a bunch of fun-loving guys."

Wrestling team 



Straining to breal^ ttie tioid 




Despite injuries, inexperience at the lower weights 
and one of the toughest schedule's in the school's 
history, the 1973-74 KSU wrestling team returned to 
respectability and gave notice that they will be a force 
to be reckoned with in the years to come. 

After finishing with a 3-1 1-1 dual meet record and a 
distant sixth to Ohio University in the Mid-American 
Conference championships last year, the Golden Flash 
matmen bounced back to a 9-5 slate and a fourth place 
finish in the MAC tournament. 

"The kids did one helluva good job this year," said 
coach Ron Gray. 

The KSU grapplers went from an "also ran" in 1973 
to legitimate contenders in 1974. And with a couple of 
breaks they could have walked away with the MAC 
title. 

Other achievements of the 1974 wrestlers were: they 
had two individual champions in the MAC tournament, 



their fourth place finish in the MAC was the best since 
1970, and they qualified five men for the NCAA 
national tournament. 

However, Gray will not let his team rest on their 
laurels. 

"I expect to see a great deal of improvement next 
season," said the third year coach. "This is a young 
team with a lot of potential that is capable of winning 
an MAC title for Kent." 

The youth Gray referred to was the trademark of this 
year's team. 

"Inexperience hurt in certain places," Gray said. "At 
times we had four or five freshmen in the starting 
lineup." 

With only one senior (MAC heavyweight king Bob 
Poweski) in the starting Hneup, patience on Gray's part 
could be a virtue.

Mat men 



When practice begins next 
October, Gray will welcome back 
experienced men at nine of the ten 
weight classes. And in some places, 
two men will be fighting it out for 
a startuig berth. 

"If we can fill some holes in the 
lower weight classes we will be a 
serious threat to take the MAC 
next year," Gray said. 

The biggest hole Gray has to fill 
is at 118 pounds. Due to injuries, 
scholastic ineligibility and lack of 
manpower, the Flashes had to 
forfeit this class in 12 of their 14 
matches. 

Although there was no one to 
wrestle in the MAC tournament at 
118 pounds, the Flashes made a 
serious run at the title until Mark 
Osgood injured a knee in the 
semi-final match of the 1 50 pound 
class and could not continue. 

The Flashes' charge at the MAC 
tournament was led by Denny 
Feleppelle (17-0 at 142 pounds) 
and Poweski (10-1-2 at 
heavyweight), both of whom won 
conference championships. 

Also bolstering Flash hopes for 
next year are Joe DiFeo (12-6 and 
third in the MAC at 167 pounds), 
Bob Shamakian (11-3-2 and third 
in the MAC at 177 pounds). Rick 




grapple for their glory 




Schultz (10-2 and third in the MAC 
at 190 pounds), and Charlie 
Latham (7-9-1 at 126 pounds and a 
fourth place finish in the MAC). 

Taking over for Poweski will be 
Dave Rodhe. As a freshman, the 
tvi^o-time Ohio scholastic champion 
was 4-0-0 while filling in for 
Poweski. 

A great deal of the credit for the 
rebirth of wrestling at Kent must 
go to Gray. 

Hard work, smart recruiting and 
patience on Gray's part gave Kent 
its first winning season since 1970. 
And by using the same formula, 
winning wrestling teams at Kent 
can be the rule rather than the 
exception.

"When I'm tense, it's harder to

"Between phone calls, I feel 
anticipation and a kind of quiet 
clam-with my heart beating fast." 

Every time the phone rings. Help 
Line volunteers have to refer to 
their 50 hours of specialized 
training that includes strenuous 
role-playing in situations such as 
drug overdose, possible suicide 
attempts, and "just getting people 
to think." 



Town Hall H-Help Line is a 
community- wide service which 
receives three-quarters of its 
funding from state drug abuse 
money and the rest from the local 
mental health budget. 

Volunteers are trained to offer 
crisis help in a variety of emotional 
emergencies and to give reliable 
drug information. 

"When thinking of a name for 
Town Hall H," said Rich Fennig, 
director in charge of operations, 
"we wanted to model our house

after colonial town halls as a place 
to meet, communicate, and make 
friends." 

Fennig has been with Town Hall 
II since its opening September 30, 
1971. He attributes the success of 
the program to its flexibility, 
innovation and excitement. 

Volunteers are screened for their 
"willingness to commit time to the 
project, their abiUty to keep their 
heads in emergencies, and their 
flexibility," according to Fennig. 



A volunteer must have a true 
desire to help people ."There's a lot 
of love around here--and caring for 
the other person," said Laura 
Mazur, a volunteer. 

Other volunteers work at Town 
Hall II because they get experience 
relating to people, they learn more 
about themselves, and they have a 
feeling of personal satisfaction. 

Although Fennig admits the 
program has given him headaches 
in the three years of its operation.

Giving drug and venereal disease

objective of Town Hall II. 

Since its beginning, the program 
has expanded to include crisis 
intervention with Help Line, 
psychological services for 
individual and group counseling, 
and a free clinic for general health 
problems, venereal disease, and 
birth control. 



Educational programs covering 
social concerns such as drug abuse 
and illegitimate births are available 
to interested groups. 

The newest program is a 
smoker's clinic-for those who want 
to kick the habit. 

In the past year. Town Hall II 
served Portage County as a 
comprehensive agency in the areas 
of crisis intervention and drug 
education. 

In 1973, the crisis intervention 



center had 6,657 contacts for 
psychological concerns, drug 
information, and drug overdose. 

Town Hall II has helped many 
people since its founding. It has 
also given many of the volunteers 
"insight, interest, and tools for a 
hfestyle of helping people." 

"Town Hall II helped me listen 
to people better," said one 
volunteer. This illustrates the 
overall theme of Town Hall

Simunek forecasts economy 




Kent is the home of the "world's 
largest" financial forecasting 
operation and according to its 
originator. Dr. Vladimir Simunek, 
this model has made Kent the 
world center of econometric 
research in that area. 

This econometric model is a 
system used to forecast 
developments in the U.S. economy 
and the relationship of American 
finances to the rest of the world. 

For the past three years, 
Simunek and other Kent State 
University economists have created 
the model and incorporated it as 
the "Kent Econometric Associates, 
Inc." (KEA). 



Formal but friendly, the 
Czechoslovakian-born Simunek 
prefaces and ends his sentences 
with a self-conscious smile. 
Simunek explains that while Kent's 
econometric model is not the only 
one of its kind, "it is the largest 
and the most accurate and 
comprehensive," he says more 
matter-of-factly than proudly. 

Attracting a great deal of 
attention from universities, 
research centers and financial 
organizations here and abroad, the 
KEA has also been acclaimed for 
its uniqueness and completeness at 
international conventions.

Simunek explained that "banks, 
insurance companies, multinational 
firms and others contact the KEA 
for probable economic 
developments and they then adjust 
financial plans accordingly. 

"We manage the model on a 
commercial basis--we sell 
forecasts," said Simunek, also 
president of KEA. Organizations 
can pay up to S4,000 for a year's 
worth of financial predictions. 

Although the KEA is a private 
enterprise, Simunek said that the 
university shares in the profits in 
two ways. First, money from KEA 
is put into fellowships, research, 
and back the publishing of books 
and periodicals. 

And second, by generating 
employment the KEA benefits the 
university, according to Simunek. 
He cited the services of the 
computer center and office rentals 
as examples of KEA money put 
into the university. 

However, the most important 
effect the KEA has upon the 
university is not a financial one, 
Simunek said. "Most importantly, 
we are the largest econometric 
system in the world-this raises 
Kent's prestige and name." 

Simunek keeps a very busy 
schedule teaching classes, working 
on forecasts, and lecturing about 
the model. Speaking eight 
languages, Simunek communicates 
his business acumen not only in his 
classrooms at Kent but in Japan, 
Korea, France, Switzerland, 
Germany and elsewhere. 

Even though Simunek has many 
lecturing obligations and research 
to do away from his classroom, he 
said that there are no conflicts 
between his work and his teaching. 

"My research is closely tied 
in with my teaching," Simunek 
said. "What I find out in my 
research is then revealed to my 
students. My work complements 
my classes and I get many student 
volunteers."

a student after class. As part of his work.

Resigns as VP 



Hall returns to academics 



"I've been an administrator for 
16 years-that's a long time," said 
Dr. Bernard Hall, who resigned this 
winter as executive vice president 
and provost. "I never really 
intended to become an 
administrator. It's just one of those 
things," said Hall. 

Hall will return to the 
Economics department and begin 
teaching full time in the fall. 
"Originally, I wanted to teach and 
I have decided that now is the time 
to return to that goal." 

Hall, born in Brooklyn, N.Y., 
has been a member of the KSU 
faculty and staff since 1957. He 
received his BA degree from 
Brooklyn College and his Ph.D. 
degree from University of 
California, Berkeley. 

Previous to his appointment as 
executive vice president in Sept. 
1972, Hall served as vice president 
and provost for a year. Before that, 
he acted as associate vice president, 
dean of the College of Business 
Administration and as chairman of 
the Economics department. 

"It is often hard to distinguish 
the job from the non-job," said 
Hall in reference to the amount of 
time required in the executive vice 
president and provost position. 

As provost, he was the chief 
academic officer, to whom all 
deans reported. The provost is also 
responsible for resource allocation 
through the budget. The provost 
generally chairs several committees 
like the Educational Policies 
Committee, he initates new 
programs, and he attends faculty 
senate meetings. 

The position was broadened to 
include the duties of the executive 
vice president. When the president 
is gone he serves in his place. Also, 
when decisions transcend all other 
vice presidents, he takes care of 
them. 

"I have enjoyed being an 
administrator," said Hall. However, 
he said it was easier to be an 
administrator in the 60's because 
there were more resources. 




During the 72-73 year the 
executive vice president's 
contingency budget was $360,000, 
according to Hall. The 73-74 
budget was about $170,000. "My 
successor will probably have only 
$70,000 to work with," said HaU. 

"Resources in relation to needs 
have shrunk," said Hall, 
"Administrators have to be more 
financially oriented today. We 



cannot afford any more sloppy 
management. 

"Next year when I'm out of 
office, I'll be concerned in a 
curiosity sense," commented Hall. 
"I imagine I will wonder what is 
going on when the president is 
meeting with the vice presidents 
and I know I'U miss the faculty 
senate meetings because I really 
enjoyed them."

Writer-in-residence 



Van Dyke stresses 




challenge of survival 



"Physical and financial survival" 
pose the greatest threat to 
beginning writers, novelist Henry 
Van Dyke said while on campus 
last fall. 

Van Dyke is Kent State's 
writer-in-residence, who has taught 
creative writing courses every fall 
quarter since '69 in the English 
department. 

Hailed as a talented writer and a 
"brave one" by the New York 
Times, Van Dyke is a Black artist 
dealing with racial differences, 
cultural hostilities, blind 
conformity and other social 
commentaries relevant to the 
times. 

Punctuating his words for 
dramatic effect. Van Dyke explains 
that "an artist should be applauded 
not only for his skill, but for his 
ability to survive." 

Advising young, would-be 
authors to practice their craft 
continually. Van Dyke warns about 
expecting recognition before 
reaching "a point of emotional 
maturity where one can make 
something significant out of life." 

With all the obstacles a writer 
must combat, Van Dyke asserts, 
"If someone wants to be a 
writer~and he is going to be a 
writer-then he will find a way. 

"It all comes down to how badly 
a person wants to write," he 
explained. "Writing is kind of a 
disease, a chronic need-to get 
published is a partial cure. 

"Maybe the will to write is just 
some deep-seated insecurity," said 
Van Dyke with a shrug. And if so, 
Van Dyke has helped a few 
burgeoning writers at Kent to get 
their creativity together. 

Adolescent sexual problems and 
searching for their own identity 
were popular writing topics for 
students in '69, said Van Dyke 
about his first fall quarter teaching. 

Returning the fall quarter after 
the May 4 tragedy. Van Dyke 
found student writers concerned 
with political havoc and "dirty 
Nixon stuff." 

However a year later, he found 
student writing interests had 
changed again-students were no 
longer political. 



According to Van Dyke, his 
students were thinking: "We tried 
to change the system and we got 
shot-so screw it." 

Van Dyke explained this 
attitude made "students wash 
themselves clean and withdraw into 
themselves-it was the drug culture 
scene." 

This past fall Van Dyke said his 
students were "reverting back to 
finding themselves- the first 
orgasm type stuff." 



Ladies of the Rachmaninoff 
Eyes, Blood of Strawberries and 
Dead Piano are three novels to Van 
Dyke's credit. The last novel 
mentioned was slated for filming 
earlier this year. 

Speaking with well-earned 
authority. Van Dyke says, "A 
writer must make sure he doesn't 
become too cynical or too caught 
up in making ends meet-he must 
not become demoralized."

Skills of past days 




come alive at Kent 





There has been a renaissance in crafts in general. At 
the same time, there has been an awakening of youth to 
what is important in life, according to Henry Halem, 
teacher of glass blowing at KSU. 

Many students are spending their time learning 
some ancient applied crafts Uke forging, glass blowing, 
and jewelry making. 

"I am impressed with what craftsmen have done in 
the past. I feel I am carrying on a great tradition," 
commented Steve Marshall, student glass blower. 

Anders Anderson, student blacksmith, explained 
the renewed interest in crafts as a reaction to excessive 
mass-production. He said, "When you make something 
by hand, you get to nurse the whole thing from start to 
finish." 

Marshall regards his art in essentially the same way, 
"You are the total picture-- you conceive the idea and 
then execute it." 

Jewelers Todd Krepley and Leslie Wilcox Krepley 
agree that something handmade has a certain aura to it. 
Craftsmen agree that the feeling of elation found in 
making something by hand cannot be equalled. 

According to Anderson, the greatest challenge 
involved in any applied craft is making an idea into a 
working, physical reality.

a decorative fork in the basement of Van Deusen Hall.

Opposite right center, Anderson wires pieces of decorative steel

Forging combines interests in 
industrial design, metal working 
and sculpture, according to Anders 
Anderson, a modern blacksmith in 
the KSU school of Art. 

Anderson came to KSU in the 
fall of '72 after hearing that there 
was a forge being started under the 
direction of Mary Ann Scherr in 
the jewelry division. 

In a small room in the 
basement of Van Deusen, 
Anderson teaches an informal class 
on the basic techniques of forging. 
"I think they set up the forge with 
about S50-all you really need to 
start are a hammer and anvil; after 
that you can make all your 
tools." 

A wide range of products has 
been turned out by students 
working as blacksmiths. The 
crudest are tools, which are the 
most useful, according to 
Anderson. Also made in great 
quantities are functional things like 
fireplace equipment and lanterns. 
Many students are moving from 
these traditional products to pure 
sculptural forging. "I want to keep 
both traditional forging and 
sculpture alive in me," said 
Anderson. 

Anderson starts a piece with a 
rough sketch for direction and to 
determine the complexity. "From 
there I work it out 
three-dime nsionally while working 
on it. You lose the element of 
surprise if you work it out in detail 
first." 




Glassblowing 



New expressions in old art 




The process of glass blowing 
has remained unchanged since the 
time of the Romans, according to 
Henry Halem, assistant professor 
teaching glass blowing in the 
school of Art 

Steve Marshall, a senior in the 
school of Art, is one of 15 

students now carrying on the 
tradition of glass blowing under 
Halem's direction. Marshall has 
been working with glass since the 
fall of 1972 and will receive a 
Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 
glass blowing. KSU is the only 
school in the U S that also offers a 
Master of Fine Arts degree in glass 
blowing, according to Halem. 

Marshall became interested in 
glass blowing after watching the 
actual process. "I was fascinated by 
the plasticity of the material," said 
Marshall.

Glass blowers work with glass 
in a molten state at 2200 degrees. 
"The material forces you to make 
spontaneous decisions that are 
relevant to the design," said 
Marshall. 

He always makes a sketch of 
the basic design in detail before 
beginning a piece. "However, the 
actual piece is conceived right there 
while I'm working on it," 
explained Marshall. A piece is 
usually finished within 15 to 30 
minutes.

"We are recycling factory 
waste glass," said Halem, "and 
forging students make some of our 
tools." The glass blowing class has 
been set up in Lincoln Center in 
downtown Kent for five years, 
since Halem began working with 
glass.The original outlay for the 
glass blowing facilities was $2,000, 
according to Halem. 

Said Halem, "We just can't fit 
everyone in that wants to learn, 
but we would eventually like to 
expand the program."

Jewelry making 

Variety sparked by medium 



Jewelry making takes longer 
than either forging or glass 
blowing, but there is much more 
variety in the process, according to 
jewelers at KSU. 

Todd Krepley and Leslie 
Wilcox Krepley have been making 
jewelry in the Akron-Kent area for 
three years. Todd, a student under 
Mary Ann Scherr in the jewelry 
division of the school of Art , 
teaches classes in jewelry making at 
KSU and at Akron University. 

Leslie is a graduate from KSU 
and works in Scherr's studio a 
couple of days a week, "to make a 
living." 

The Krepley's do most of 
their jewelry work by commission 
out of their studio in Akron. They 
said, "By doing commissions we 
have more freedom to do what 
designs we want and get paid quite 
well for it." 

"We also do a couple of shows 
each year because they are good 
for quick money," said Leslie. 
However, they call themselves 
"untraditional, contemporary" 
jewelers and lean more and more 
toward pure sculptural designs. 

Both Todd and Leslie Krepley 
have been experimenting in 
unconventional forms and media . 
They have a large supply of plastic 
novelties, like the ones in gum 
machines, that they cast into gold 
or silver mo Ids to decorate pieces of 
jewelry. 

Precious metals like gold and 
silver are used most often by the 
Krepley's. However, they are using 
many other less expensive metals 
and materials including brass, 
copper, and Plexiglas because of 
the cost and because they offer 
more variety. 

Above, Todd Krepley, KSU jeweler, 
solders a brass back to a belt buckle. 

Below, Krepley pounds out, then 
attaches a part of the belt buckle.

Above, Krepley rivets a piece of Plexiglas to the brass part of a 
belt buci<le. Above right and right, he cuts a piece of copper with 
a fine saw, then solders on a belt prong. Below, the finished 
product is a belt buckle made of brass, copper, and black and 
white Plexiglas pieces that he would sell for about $50. 



Jewelry making requires more 
than talent and desire. It requires 
many types of tools to cut, polish, 
and fasten various materials. 

The Krepley's work with a 
number of fine-toothed saws when 
cutting metals and plastics. A torch 
is used to solder pieces of metal 
together. After soldering, the piece 
is dropped into a hot acid solution 
to clean off the residue. 

"When a piece is finally put 
together," said Todd, "it must be 
polished and buffed to the 
particular sheen I want. That takes 
from 20 minutes to a couple of 
hours." 

The Krepley's may spend up to 
several weeks on one creation. 
They make wedding rings, 
necklaces bracelets, chalices, belt 
buckles, body jewelry, and some 
very modernistic jewelry-sculpture.

Black community 



advances at KSU 






lAAA... 



In an effort to respond to the 
eductional needs of Black students 
and to provide insight into Black 
experience for the university 
community--the Institute for 
African American Affairs(IAAA) 
was created five years ago. 

Since that time, the lAAA has 
developed many profitable 
programs to aid the Black 
community. Some of these 
contributions include the sickle cell 
testing program, community 
development work-and-learn 
practical, the Black Cultural Center 
and the Model Cities higher 
education service. Last November 
lAAA received two grants totaUng 
more than S2 1,000 for the 
continuation of the Model Cities 
service and the sickle cell testing. 

Student recruiting will continue 
in the Akron Model Cities area and 
expand into the Cleveland Model 
Cities because of a $10,000 grant 
from the State Department of 
Economics and Community 
Service. 

The Institute also received 
$1 1,643 for sickle cell testing from 
the Ohio Department of Health.

Black drama 




Since spring quarter, the Black drama course of 
lAAA has presented a trilogy of plays under the 
direction of veteran Karamu House actress Sandy 
Sheffy. 

In these humorous emotional plays, Black students 
have portrayed the agonies and ecstasies of the Black 
experience. Students cover the floor in calisthenics for 
the theatre--deep-breathing exercises to increase 
awareness of the senses, and limbering exercises for 
better muscle response. 

Only in the dress rehearsal does it all add up. The 
resources of experience and talent, necessary for 
meaningful drama, are evidently used by opening night 
at the end of every quarter.

BUS... 



Amidst the turbulent sixties of 
urban riots, student rebellions and 
the tinge of revolution. Black 
United Students (BUS) exploded 
into being. 

Before BUS was two years old, it 
achieved national recognition when 
Black students walked off campus 




in protest of Oakland police 
recruiters at KSU. The result of 
this highly publicized and 
controversial walk off challenged 
the KSU administration to 
seriously address itself to the long 
neglected problems of Black 
students. 

In time, through constant 
political confrontations with the 
administration BUS sparked the 
creation of the Institution for 
African-American Affairs(IAAA). 

Working for a mutual bond of 
Black concerns, BUS and lAAA 
sought to solve the problems Black 
students faced academically, 
socially and politically at KSU. 

Although BUS is less militant in 
style today, members say they are 
continuing the challenge they 
began six years ago. 

Under the leadership of 
President Silas Ashley this year, 
BUS accomphshed many "firsts"- 
all of which attempted to tighten 
the unification of Black students 
and gain a more viable image in the 
eyes of the administration, as 
Ashley put it. 

Among these "firsts" is the 
Black Institutional Planning 
Committee report. This 43-page 
document exposed familiar 
problems bothering the university 
as well as Black students and 
suggested solutions to the 
problems. 

Another notable achievement 
was the working relationship 
between the BUS Ministry of 
Greivance and Campus Security. 

The benefits from this 
partnership in crime prevention is 
twofold. First, students who have 
been victimized may seek aid by 



calling the Grievance office or 
Campus Security; help would then 
be immediately dispatched. And 
second, students seeking legal 
advice could call at any hour. 

One unexpected achievement of 
the year was the bi-weekly 
publication of BUS's news organ, 
the Black Watch. It was published 
without support of student fees. 
Prior to this year the Black Watch 
received a yearly allocation of 
S3,000-S4,000. 

Perhaps the brightest 
accomplishment of Silas Ashley's 
administration was the political 
unification of Black Greeks, Black 
athletes and GDI's (God damn 
Independents )-a goal which has 
been talked about-but nevei 
realized. 

Frank Truitt's resignation from 
head basketball coach was viewed 
as a victory by BUS, despite the 
fact that other groups expressed 
similar doubts about Truitt's ability. 

BUS had a four year history of 
charging Frank Truitt with racial 
discrimination in recruitment and 
poor coaching, Ashley said. Upon 
reading his announcement of 
retirement in the Daily Kent 
Stater, one of the Ministers in 
BUS'S Executive Board was heard 
to exclaim, "A victory for the 
people!"

complaints in the public eye during the

Why Black Homecoming? 



Shades of the Black Experience 
are usually omitted from 
traditional Homecoming activities 
at KSU mainly because the 
planners of Homecoming fail to 
recruit Black talent. 

Six years ago, BUS, realizing 
that if a Homecoming reflective of 
the Black Experience was to be, 
they would have to organize the 
affair themselves. 

To the casual observer, it may 
appear that there is no difference 
between the traditional KSU 
Homecomings and BUS's-but one 
must consider the style and intent 
of a Homecoming and the audience 
appreciation. 

This fall, BUS soul-fully 
presented concerts, speeches and 
plays for Black Homecoming. 
These programs were designed to 
heighten political consciousness 
and satisfy the entertainment 
desires of Black students-they 
were heavily attended. 

Black students experiences their 
Blackness with Stokely Carmichael; 
Earth, Wind and Fire; Camille 
Yarborough, and the Isley 
Brothers. 

Carmichael told a Black 
Homecoming audience that "We 
are Africans-African and Black are 
one and the same. The reason 
Africans are scattered all over the 
world is because they were forced 
to chop cotton and sugar cane by 
malicious Europeans." 

Yarborough advised Blacks to 
"do it their way. They will respect 
you for it-but quite often not Uke 
you. You have to decide what is 
more important." 

"Black people like each 
other-but not nearly enough," she 
said. 

Why a Black Homecoming? 
Black students need to hear the 
words of people like Carmichael 
and Yarborough. A Black 
Homecoming is needed to give a 
true representation of the Black 
Experience. 

Above right, Stokely Carmichael 
addressed over 1,000 students in the 
university ballroom during BUS 
Homecoming week and stressed the need 
for Blacks to push for the positive.

TV-2 
Family Tree 



Family Tree is WKSU TV-2's 
only weekly Black-oriented show. 
Written and produced by Black 
telecommunications majors, the 
program is designed to expose the 
wealth of Black talent on campus 
and in the community. 

"The name of the show. Family 

Tree, is indicative of what we are 

trying to show our audience," said 

Evelyn Jackson, executive 

producer. 

"At the same time we want to 
give Black telecom majors 
firsthand experience in dealing 
with relevant broadcast material," 
she said. 

"We touch on many aspects of 
Blackness in the show," said the 
senior telecom major. 

Broadcasting fashion shows, 
readings on Black art and poetry, 
and discussions by well-known 
Black leaders, Family Tree is on 
every Thursday. 

Under the guidance of director 
Jon Harper, the Family Tree staff 
say they strive for perfection in 
every show-it holds the rating as 
number one show on TV-2. 




Nguzo Saba 



Seven principles of nation building 



NGUZO SABA (Seven 
Principles) is a Black value system 
created by Maulana Ron Karenga, 
chairman of US, a Black cultural 
organization in Los Angeles, 
California. 

Each principle of NGUZO SABA 
is a Black commandment 
incorporated into our minds for 
the purpose of Black consciousness 
and nation building. 

UMOJA (Unity)--the first 
principle: "To strive for and 
maintain unity in the family, 
community, nation and race." 

A number of Black students on 
Kent's campus are members of 
Black-Greek families, while other 
Blacks identify with political 
consciousness organizations. A 
smaller group of African students is 
involved in African associations. 

Regardless of the number of 
different Black groups on this 
campus, there should be few 
divisions between them. As Imamu 
Amiri Baraka said, "Each one of 
these organizations is an 'organ'." 
These organs must unite to form a 
whole body-a body of Blackness. 

KUJICHAGULIA 

(self-determination)-the second 
principle: "To define ourselves, 
name ourselves, create for ourselves 
and speak for ourselves-instead of 
being defined and spoken for by 
others." 

We are not from the same 
culture, therefore, we do not have 
the same wants and needs as the 
majority. 

We tave come to the realization 
that we can create and control our 
own destiny. 



by Linda Jones 

When we ask for the recruitment 
of more Black students, the hiring 
of more Black faculty, and a Black 
cultural center, we are expressing 
KUJICHAGULIA. 

UJIMA (Collective Work and 
Responsivility)-the third principle: 
"Individualism means being 
yourself at the expense of others. 
There is no such thing as 
individualism-we're all Black." 

When a Black person is 
incarcerated for unjust reasons, it is 
not only his problem-it is our 
problem. It would be our duty to 
see that our brother is judged 
fairly. If he is innocent of any 
crime, we should not be considered 
free until he is free. 

When our brothers and sisters 
are at war in Africa, it is our duty 
to help them in their struggle for 
liberation. Our marches, benefit 
programs, and rallies are a 
collective effort to free our people 
from the hands of the oppressor. 

bus's Liberation School has 
over 50 school-aged children who 
need the help of tutors. Black 
students of the Kent community 
have accepted the responsibility of 
tutoring these children and 
enlightening them of their African 
heritage. UJIMA in action. 

U J A M A A (Cooperative 
Economics)~the fourth principle: 
"To build and maintain our own 
stores, shops and other businesses 
and to profit together." 

Black students majoring in 
business administration should 
realize that they play a very 
important part in our present and 
future. 



A part of Black Power is 
economic power, and a sound 
economy is what we need in order 
to survive. 

NIA (Purpose)-the fifth 
principle: "We are not here to 
protest and contradict reality ;we 
are here to change it. We say there 
are three purposes now: to win the 
minds of our people, to restore our 
people to their traditional 
greatness, and to leave a legacy for 
our children." 

Our minds must be converted 
back to the African way of 
thinking, in order for us to have 
pride in our being. Our purpose in 
this institution is to prepare a 
better future for our children. 

KUUMBA (Creativity )-the sixth 
principle: "To do always as much 
as we can, any way we can, in 
order to leave our community 
more beautiful and beneficial than 
we inherited it." 

Black students should be 
creative in their talents;be it art, 
dance, music, or other endeavors. 

We must do away with the 
"banking concept" of education 
and exercise our minds for 
Black -improvemen t . 

I MAN I (Faith)-- -the seventh 
principle: "To believe with all our 
hearts in our parents, our leaders, 
our people and the righteousness 
and final victory of our struggle." 

I believe in Malcolm X, George 
Jackson and Martin Luther King, 
but I did not listen to them until 
they died. 

Black people should realize that 
it is time to have IMANI, and take 
heed to what our living leaders are 
saying. 

"The seven principles are the 
key to new Nationalism. ..a path to 
Blackness and Nationhood."

Community center funds frozen 

still hope for Skeels-McElrath 




"Every bit of water I get I have to carry," a resident 
of Skeels said as she gestured to the pump across the 
street from her house. 

To the other residents of McEh-ath and Skeels, two 
rural neighborhoods north of Ravenna, the absence of 
plumbing and sewage is nothing unusual. 

The lack of these facilities has prolonged a S200,000 
Housing and Urban Development (HUD) grant needed 
for the proposed King-Kennedy Center, a community 
service project. 

Before federal monies can be used to finance the 
construction of the center, government regulations 
mandate that McElrath must have access to plumbing 
and sewage, according to Dr. Paul Sites, a member of 
the Community Action Council. 

Sites, a professor of sociology and anthropology at 
KSU, predicts, "Sewage and water in McElrath should 
be completed by the end of this year and in Skeels a 
year from this June." 



269 



Skeels-McElrath 




Soon residents of Skeels-McElrath will 
have running water and sewage disposal. 

Opposite below, McElrath resident works 
for the betterment of her community on 
the McElrath Improvement committee. 




However, plumbing and sewage is not the only thing 
blocking the construction of the center. "Nixon, 
meanwhile, has frozen all federal monies in the HUD 
fund," explained Sites. "We are going ahead with our 
plans anyway and hope that we can get the money that 
was allocated to us." 

In order for the center to be eligible for HUD funds, 
$100,000 had to be pledged from local sources, said 
Sites. Kent students assumed the brunt of this 
sum-promising S80,000 in student donations. 

Students have the option to pay an additional one 
dollar with their tuition fees each quarter. As of winter 
quarter, student contributions reached $33,000. 

The remainder of local contributions includes 
"in-kind services," Sites explained. "When an architect 
volunteers his service or when someone gives free labor 
for the project-their monetary worth is considered." 

Skeels-McEbath residents patiently wait for the 
center which will house day care, dental and food co-op 
services, welfare guidance, a credit union, home 
management tutoring, and counseling. 

Even though the completion of the center is lagging, 
the people of these poverty pockets can look forward 
to the completion of water and sewage lines. 




"I won't know how to 
act -- it might take a 
while to get used to 
city water." 



"It will be wonderful to have water inside your 
house," remarked one resident. "I won't know how to 
act--it might take a while to get used to city water." 

Even this advancement might be a mixed blessing, 
however. Money to connect the water system to the 
houses will up property assessments-creating another 
problem for the people. 

Money is as much an obstacle for the residents of 
Skeels and McElrath as it is for those outsiders trying to 
help them.

Men who use these chairs 
are running the university 




"To us, KSU is more like a medium-sized city tlian a 
university," said Jack Speaker, head of Kent State's 
maintenance department. 

"We are the utilities and repair crews, gardeners, 
earth-movers, builders, and odd-jobbers combined." 

The maintenance department is probably the least 
known, but one of the busiest operations on campus. It 
distributes electricity, steam, water, heat and 
air-conditioning to the entire university. 

"The maintenance crews are like a standing army," 
said a student worker. "When there is a bad snow or a 
heating or water Ime breaks, they all rush in and work 
until it is completely done." 




273 



Maintenance crews build, 



A maintenance worker's day 
beings at 6:45 a.m. and ends at 
about 3:30 p.m. A grounds worker 
said he doesn't like daylight savings 
time because he has to work in the 
dark. 

Workers have two breaks and a 
lunch break during the day. Most 
think this is a great time of the day 
to get together and talk and maybe 
play cards. 

There are many student workers 
on maintenance crews. Some of the 
professional workers are afraid 
students will provide cheap labor 
and may take over more jobs. 

However, most maintenance jobs 
require training and skills. All are 
state workers and must pass civil 
service exams. 

The maintenance department is 
interested in ecology. The heating 
plant uses natural gas instead of 
coal because it is cleaner. 

Also, a woman has been hired to 
turn off lights at the end of the day 
in school buildings to conserve 
energy. 

Men running the heating plant, 
who must be state-licensed 
engineers, discovered that noise in 
the plant was at a dangerous level. 
So they built sound proofing for 
workers who must monitor systems 
24 hours a day, 364 days a year. 

Although the maintenance 
department is a behind-the-scenes 
operation, the workers are aware of 
students. 

One painter said, "We've noticed 
a change in students since 1970. 

"Then, if we left paint out while 
we were on break, students were 
sure to throw it on the walls. Also 
there were a lot of damages. 

"Now, students aren't as bitter 
about war and school and we don't 
have as much vandalism."

underground pipelines in the massive 
system of tunnels throughout the 
campus.

No, Kent State didn't have 
streakers in the thousands like 
other univeristies--but Kent 
students did make an immodest 
attempt to increase the school's 
public exposure. 

It was a warm evening on March 
5 when about 25 students, all male, 
embarked upon a streaking 
campaign on front campus. The 
event drew hundreds of on-lookers 
and the uncovering was covered in 
all the local media. 

"I didn't think streaking would 
win us friends in northeast Ohio, 
but every generation finds their 
own way to usher in the rites of 



spring," said Glenn Olds, KSU 
president. 

The days following the first rash 
of streakers brought smaller 
outbreaks throughout the campus. 

Although most women resisted 
the urge to disrobe completely, 
many of the male streakers were 
greeted with bared legs and pantied 
behinds from dorm windows. 

About four women joined the 
streaker's ranks four days after the 
first streak-in. However, three of 
these women regretted their 
actions later because of the crowd's 
attitude.

Q: 'Why do people streak?' 

A: 'Because we're college students 

and college students are supposed 

to have fun.'

"I just wanted to streak because 
the guys were having so much 
fun-I wanted to have some too," 
said one girl. "But when we 
streaked, the men just started 
pawing all over us-girls didn't do 
that to the guy streakers." 

"Those guys acted like male 
dogs after a female dog in heat," 
said another disgusted female 
streaker. "I won't blame other girls 
for not wanting to streak now." 

Streaking went world-wide. 
Members of this exhibitionist cult 
showed no discrimination as to 
where, when and how they did it. 

Yes-even the Eiffel Tower, long 
a camera-clicking tourist attraction, 
was affronted by 13 nude runners. 

The University of Georgia had 
parachuting streakers, the guys at 
Purdue ran in 20 below zero 
weather, others streaked for 
impeachment. West Point cadets 
dashed past outraged officers~and 
Kent came througli with Howdy 
Doody masks and nude 
motorcyclists. 

And there was the mysterious 
"Bagman". Reputedly he lives in 
the Sigma Alpha Epsilon frat 
house, but his modesty forced him 
to streak with a brown bag over his 
head. 

"Streaking was good," said one 
Kent student. "With all the stuff 
going wrong in the world-the 
nation needed a laugh."

Save energy today, 




ride campus buses 




"I don't know whether it's due to the fuel shortage or 
not, but our daily ridership has increased by 25 per cent 
over last year," said Joe Fiala, general manager of 
Campus Bus Service (CBS). 

"We accomodate 25,000 riders each day," continued 
Fiala. "This puts us in the top five transit systems in the 
U.S." 

With today's fuel crisis, Fiala said there is a definite 
need for expanding the bus service. 

"We now offer service to Cleveland every Friday 
afternoon," said Fiala. "We're looking into expanding 
next year to connect with the Akron transit system. 

"A bus also makes two trips to the Greyhound 
station every Friday, where a rider can catch a bus going 
east to Youngstown and Pittsburgh, and west to 
Akron," Fiala continued. 

"Like everything else, our costs are rising too. For 
example, our fuel costs have risen 100 per cent over last 
year. That's why we asked for an increase in fees." 

"We haven't heard too many complaints about the 
fee increase," continued Fiala. "A few people have said 
that because they don't ride the bus, they shouldn't 
have to pay. What they don't understand is that the 
Bus service is almost like an insurance poUcy-if their 
car breaks down, they can always depend on the bus. 

"I am proud of what CBS has done without federal 
funding, " said Fiala. "The only way we can get 
subsidized from the government is to become a transit 
authority." 

Under the PARTA (Portage Area Regional Transit 
Authority) program, it has been recommended that the 
community develop a transit authority. 

Fiala explained, "A contract would be submitted to 
the University for the service to continue for the 
campus and be opened up to the townspeople. 

"Right now we are investigating the transit authority 
for the Portage area. But the transit development study 
will continue. Nothing has been finalized," said Fiala. 

Many students are not aware of the many services 
that CBS provides. Besides transporting handicapped 
students, CBS also takes nurses to and from Cleveland 
daily and takes athletic teams to and from away games. 
CBS even provides services for departments throughout 
the University. 

"We only have two vans to transport handicapped 
students," said one van driver. "We make about 160 
trips in them a day." Fiala pointed out that CBS has 
applied for a third van. 

With 24 buses running on campus, bus driving is a 
pretty popular job. 

A senior driver said, "Bus driving sells itself; the pay 
is good, time goes fast, and you meet alot of people." 

"There are certain requirements that must be met to 
be a bus driver," explained one woman driver. "You 
must be a student at KSU, be 19 years old and 5'6" tall. 
You also have to pass some tests and get a chauffer's 
license."

Student ambulance 








"As far as we know, we are the

said Craig Ward, public relations 
consultant for Kent's Student 
Volunteer Ambluance Service. 

With an executive board of seven

"We've come a long way since 
the first group who were playing 
rookie ambulance drivers," Ward 
said. "Now, we could match any 
professional team." 

The number of students working 
on one of the four shifts hovers 
between 40 and 60 students each 
quarter. Only after an intensive 
60-hour non-credit training period 
in first-aid procedures can a 
student participate in the service. 



Students receive no credit or pay 
for their time said Ward. "They 
have to be dedicated. They feel 
they're really helping and can see 
the benefits immediately." 

On the average the team receives 
three calls a day, with OD's and 
broken bones heading the list. 

A joke in the unit is the 13M 
call-it is a menstrual run. Many 
girls experiencing extreme 
menstrual cramps call wanting to 
be taken to the Health Center. 

The service received a new 
ambulance fall quarter, a Horton 
conversion Dodge maxi-van. The 
old ambulance is being renovated 
to replace a station wagon used to 
transport students too sick to walk 
to the Health Center. 

Each ambulance run consists of 
a three-man crew. One volunteer 



acts as a surveillance man, 
observing the victim before 
moving, while the other two handle 
the stretcher. 

According to Ward, the crew is 
the best-trained and best-equipped 
student volunteer ambulance 
service in northern Ohio . 

It can reach any place on 
campus in three minutes, anywhere 
in the city in four, Silver Meadows 
in six and Robinson Memorial 
Hospital in eight or nine, according 
to Ward. 

The service, operated from the 
basement of the Health Center, was 
born in the spring of 1972 by 
James Levine, a student majoring 
in criminal justice. The volunteer 
program falls under the authority 
of the director of security and the 
director of the Health Center.

Off campus housing 



There may be ants on the 
kitchen counter and mildew in the 
shower, but students agree that 
off-campus houses are homier. 

"When I get across from 
McGilvrey, I turn my back on 
campus," said one 424 E. College 
resident. "It's not my ideal, but it's 
homier than Tri-Towers." 

Her house is typical of 
approximately 107 student houses 
conveniently edging campus. 
Eleven girls, two kitchens, three 
bathrooms, a living room too small 
to use, and frequent requests to the 
landlord are nothing unusual to 
find under one leaky roof. But 
students are obviously willing to 
tolerate the bad where there is 
some good, as proven by an 
estimated thirty-three per cent who 
hve in these houses. 

"I can study more easily 
here-you're not as Ukely to have 
visitors bopping into your room as 
in a big dorm where you knew 60 
people," said a student living in the 
424 boarding house. "It's 
convenient and I'm closer to my 
waitressing job and classes."

to have visitors bopping

-off campus resident 






Cost is another advantageous 
factor. "I couldn't afford school 
otherwise," said another student. 

Rather displeasing but 
understood are the kitchen and 
bathroom faciUties and the way 
people use them. "It's a mess when 
nine girls eat at the same time and 
dishes are still in the sink from 
meals before," explained one 
girl. Only two girls use the 
basement kitchen. "It looks and 
feels like a basement. I carry my 
meals up to my room on the 
second floor," complained a rather 
thin resident. 

"When I first moved in last 
quarter, the landlord told me he'd 
get me curtains; he told me the 
same thing today," said another 
student. "For the first five 
weeks there was no cold water 
faucet-I had to use hot water to 
brush my teeth," she added. 



Are off campus house students 
tolerant or ignorant? 

Off Campus Student Affairs 
(OCSA) and Commuter and 
Off -Campus Student Organization 
(CO SO) are both anxious to 
educate students on health and 
housing codes. 

"Awareness of our service is 
not as thorough as we'd like," said 
Willian Fahrenback, OCSA 
administrative director. "Students 
identify us with residence halls and 
they are afraid of being put back in 
the dorm." 

Only those students with less 
than six quarters of school, who 
aren't veterans or living with family 
need worry about being put in a 
dorm. Age restrictions were lifted 
in fall '73. 

Landlord-tenant problems 
account for 90 per cent of 



complaints received, according to 
Fahrenback. He pointed out that 
many landlord practices are legal 
but unfair since Ohio law favors 
landlords. 

Most common is the security 
deposit rip-off, according to COSO 
vice - chairperson Dave Canan. 
COSO provides lists of complaints 
on all landlords and checklists to 
record damages before leases are 
signed. 

According to city ordinances, 
landlords are responsible for 
upkeep of boarding houses, while 
tenants must assume these chores if 
the entire house is rented~not 
many students are aware of this. 

"Helping students choose 
different lifestyles," is another 
concern of OCSA, says 
Fahrenback. "The further away 
from campus a student lives, the 
less college plays a part in his life."

Media survey shows— 



Stater most used media 



The importance of media in 
American society has recently 
grown. Here at Kent State the 
function of the media was studied 
in a Chestnut Burr survey. 

The Burr randomly picked 
students at all class levels, 
representing 1 1 per cent of the 
student body, in an attempt to find 
out what media is most commonly 
used for information. 

The survey dealt with The Daily 
Kent Stater, WKSU-AM and FM, 
and WKSU TV-2, all of which are 
operated by students. 

The Stater is by far the most 
used media. At least 85 per cent of 
the students polled said they read 
the Stater daily. In terms of 
evaluation, the student's responses 
varied between good and average, 
with less than 5 per cent saying 
the coverage of news was poor. 

Yet this may not be a true 
reflection because as one senior 
said, he reads it because "it gives 
you something to do during boring 
classes." 

However, a freshman may have 
been more accurate when he said, 
"I like it. It interests everyone on 
campus and there is something in it 
for everyone." 

Most respondents felt the DKS 
should cover more national news, 
while a majority indicated that 
they rely solely on the Stater for 
campus news. 

Concerning whether or not the 
DKS gives fair and accurate 
coverage of campus news, at least 
65 per cent said it does, with the 
notable exception of sophomores 
who disagreed by a three to one 
margin. 

During the year the Stater was 
charged with racism by minority 
groups. One senior said, "The DKS 
to me is a racist newspaper. They 
bring white news and not Black." 

Left, a production of Main Street is seen 
from a TV-2 cameramen's point of view. 

Right, students working on the DKS 
must be able to lay out page one in a 
minimum amount of time to make the 
deadline each night. 



Another said, "There is too 
much bull. They need to forget 
the propaganda and get to the 
facts." 

But many students pointed to 
the fact that the editors and 
reporters are not professionals and 
as one student said, "I think the 
Stater is a fair and honest attempt 
at journalism on this campus and I 
applaud their efforts and praise 
their product." 

Few students indicated that they 
enjoyed the advertisements, with 
the exception of freshmen, 
80 per cent of whom said the 
ads were enjoyable. 

For obtaining off-campus news 



events, students read more 
newspapers than magazines. Local 
newspapers were preferred to 
non-local ones and most magazine 
readers read Playboy, Newsweek 
and Time. 

Stater entertainment reviews by 
Davis Bradley have been the cause 
of considerable comment this year. 
In the Burr's survey, over 50 per 
cent of the students said they 
enjoyed the reviews. 

A non-theatre person in the poll 
said, "The theatre reviews are 
unfair. KSU theatre is not 
professional, but educational." 

Another said, ''The 
entertainment reviews are 




299 



ridiculously too critical." 

On the other hand, one student 
said, "I don't agree with how he 
says it but theatre students have 
to be treated as professionals, even 
while they are learning. 

A majority of students said they 
enjoy sports news, although most 
answers on the fill-in question did 
not bear this out. A typical 
comment was, "Sports is dead for 
all but a few." 

Although some students said the 



campus news coverage was too 
narrow, upwards of 65 per cent 
said they felt the DKS covers most 
campus news. 

The students indicated by a 
four-to-one margin that they 
enjoyed the paper's pictures. Much 
of the criticism was centered 
around the subject of pictures. As 
one senior said, "They should have 
better cutlines for photos and stop 
taking pictures of manhole 
covers." 



Concerning student input into 
the paper, only 1 1 per cent of the 
respondents said they had written 
letters to the editor. Of these 
people, however, more than 80 per 
cent had their letters published. 

The second most utilized media 
on campus is the radio, according 
to the survey. All respondents had 
access to a radio and very few had 
only an AM radio. Less than 30 per 
cent of those surveyed said they 
listened to WKSU-AM.

r j^K 





One student classified the AM 
station as being "dumb talk". A 
freshman said, "I don't Usten to 
AM because I don't like Top 40." 

On the average, less than 20 per 
cent said they enjoyed the Am 
programming. 

WKSU-FM fared slightly better 
with about 3 1 per cent saying they 
listen to the station. Fresh Air, a 
program offered by WKSU-FM, 
was cited by many students as their 
reason for listening. 



Another student said WKSU-FM 
was preferred because "it has the 
local information." 

The greatest majority of 
students said they preferred 
WMMS-FM (in Cleveland) to any 
local station. Many students said 
the type of music played was more 
to their hking. A freshman said, "I 
like WMMS and I'm set in my 
ways." 

The students said that 9 p.m. to 
1 1 p.m. is the most popular time to 




listen to the radio. The most 
popular days to tune in are Friday 
and Saturday. 

Rock 'n roll is by far the most 
enjoyed type of music according to 
the survey. Jazz and classical were 
second choices. 

In relation to listening to the 
campus stations for news, very 
few people said they relied on 
either station. 

The programming for each 
station is enjoyed by the 
responding students at less than 20 
per cent. In fact, not one junior 
said he enjoyed any WKSU-FM 
programming. 

Kent State's television station, 
WKSU TV-2, is the least used 
media, according to the survey. 
This is due in part to its 
transmission which can be received 
only in dornitories or by cable 
TV. Less than 3 per cent watch 
TV-2. Also, a majority of the 
students responded that they do 
not watch television at all. 

Here again, Cleveland stations 
out-polled the local stations by 
almost five-to-one. Evenings and 
weekends are when most of the 
respondents watch television. 

Movies were the first choice of 
programs among all polled, except 
for juniors, who chose news. 
Documentaries was also a frequent 
answer. 

Of those surveyed who watch 
TV-2, approximately 25 per cent 
indicated that they enjoy the 
programming. 

The limited availability of TV-2 
dictated that those surveyed would 
have Uttle in the way of opinions. 
However, of those who did respond 
a freshman said, "I have never 
watched TV-2 except for a biology 
lecture." 

Another said, "The only 
time that I watched it was for the 
filming of a play and the cameras 
kept blockmg out the characters." 

And a third said, "It has many 
possibilities that have not yet been 
explored."

"farce of a play 



99 




"We cut corners a lot-you are 
more creative" when only $125 is 
allocated by University Theatre to 
do a play, said Jac Cole, the 
director of "What the Butler Saw. " 

Despite the low budget of this 
Rockwell Hall production, it was a 
box office smash, hailed as a great 
"farce of a play." 

It is a slapstick, witty, rolUcking, 
complex, tongue-in-cheek, VERY 
British comedy of manners play. 
Sex and its various perversions are 
the motivating forces behind the 
characters. 

The action is set in an insane 



asylum where everyone, including 
the psychiatrists are quite, quite 
Mad. 

Working closely with set 
designer Chris Gargoline, Cole 
explained that "the set and 
costumes were just as insane as the 
characters. Everything was planned 
to be a little bit off." 

Aware of the play's oddness. 
Cole said, "I knew young people 
would be attracted to this show 
because it was filled with 
semi-nudity, sex, transvestites...it 
satisfied everything that needs to 
be satisfied." 



Fittingly, Butler had strange 
beginnings. "Tryouts were quite 
different- we didn't use a script at 
all," said John Matsis (Dr. 
Prentice). Actors read 20 tongue 
twisters in both American and 
British accents to get their parts. 

"So many little verbal jokes 
going on all the time in the show," 
Cole explained. "I could eliminate 
people with tongue twisters 
because I was looking for actors 
able to manipulate their voices." 

Once the director has chosen his 
cast, Cole said it was then up to 
him to "make sure the play works 
for the audience."

people at tryouts with the use of tongue

Tryouts were quite 
different--we didn't 
use a script at all' 

Offering students a chance to direct, Rockwell 
threatre productions are usually experimental dramas 
that are rarely done. 

"I never could have shown"What the Butler Saw" 
in Alabama'" Jac Cole, the director, said. "Only a very 
small, cosmopolitan, and sophisticiated audience could 
enjoy this show--the silent majority would walk out." 

Wearing a black beret, the tall and slender Cole has 
a theatrical air about him. Perhaps it is his 
pronounced speaking tone or his nervous, excited 
gestures that give one the feeling that here is a man who 
spells Theatre with an "re" instead of an "er." 

Cole admits that a director must at times become 
an "amateur psychiatrist" in order to "minimize 
personal problems of the actors that interfere with the 
show." 

"I like to see the actors contribute something of 
themselves," Cole said. "An artist will work harder for 
something he has partly created." 

"I saw myself as an excitable British eccentric--Jac 
Cole saw my part differently," said Bruce Keefe (Dr. 
Vance.) "I went along with Jac," Keefe admitted, 
"because it was his responsibility to keep the show 
consistant." 

Most of the members of "What the Butler Saw" 
agreed that Jac Cole was the "unifying force" behind its 
success.

the final touch 





No matter how well a show's 
makeup, costumes and set are 
done, the success of a comedy 
depends upon "timing and pacing," 
said John Matsis (Dr. Prentice). 

"Comedy is hard to do." He 
explained that "the actor must 
believe in his role, but still 
exaggerate the part." 

The death of Joe Orton, the 
author of 'What the Butler Saw' 
reflects the comedy's insanity. 
While sleeping, Orton was beaten 
to death with a hammer by his 
lover. His lover hanged himself 
before coming to trial.

I am totally fascinated by 
theatre. It is nice to see someone 
grab hold of a part and make that 
character believable. When an actor 
is handling a part well, the artists' 
attitude toward his role is a 
challenge to capture with my 
camera. 

I have been shooting theatre for 
four years. In that time I have 
become aware of lighting and the 
positioning of actors. If the 
blocking is bad then the play can't 
be photographed well. A bad play 
shows up poorly in my pictures, 
while a good play is easily reflected 
in my photographs. 

In attempting to show the art in 
theatre my photography becomes 
an art form of another art form. 
Theatre people and photographers 
are both keenly aware of visual 
images.

Davis Bradley 



Slams college shows 




321 



(Ed. Note: One of the single-most 
controversial happenings on 
campus this past year was the 
reviewing of Davis Bradley, who is 
theatre critic and Entertainment 
Editor of the Daily Kent Stater. 
The following is Mr. Bradley's 
estimation of University Theatre 
during fall and winter quarters of 
1973-74.) 

As Entertainment Editor of the 
Daily Kent Stater, I have had to sit 
through two quarters of 
thoroughly boring, insipid, tedious 
and in general, lousy productions 
of University Theatre. 

Since I feel my job as theatre 
critic is one that requires total 
honesty with no exceptions, I have 
had no alternative but to pan the 
barrage of the poor excuses for 
legitimate theatre on campus. 

My reviews are constantly 
under attack, mostly by those 
people who are closely connected 
with the theatre department at 
Kent State. 

After every unfavorable review 
of a University Theatre production 
in the Stater, I never fail to receive 
no fewer than a dozen nasty and 
inflammatory letters calling me 
everything from an imbecile to a 
child with a leaky pen and the list 
goes on and on and on. 

I don't find that the majority of 
the Stater's readership regards me 
as either the most hated person on 
campus or an imbecile. If this were 
the case, then people would not 
respect my judgment and attend 
University Theatre shows, 
anyway-but they don't. 

As for University Theatre itself, 
they have charged me with such 
noteworthy deeds as 
single-handedly destroying their 
box-office sales and emotionally 
upsetting their actors to an extent 
where some have declared they will 
never perform again. 

First, if such charges were true 
and I had the power to create the 
situations they give me this 
infamous credit for, then I would 
be God. 

Second, perhaps we 
theatre-goers would be a little bit 
better off if some of the campus 
performers did make a theatrical 
exit from the stage-for good. 




Third, as for their slandering me 
in class, it only shows how childish 
and unprofessional they are 
off-stage as well as on. 

I have found University 
Theatre's main problem with 
staging shows to be one of 
defective priorities. The director's 
of the shows have a rather 
eccentric way of spending 95 per 
cent of their time and effort on the 
technical part of the production . 



Top, Don Michael Jones sings Get Me to 

the Church On Time in My Fair Lady. 

Above, David Prittie, as Valentine Brose 
explains the workings of the boiler in the 
farcical production of Eh? to his fiancee 
(Libby Karas) while she contemplates his 
sanity. 

Right, Eliza Dolittle (Gaylen Corbett) 
expresses her vindictiveness toward her 
linguistics teacher, Henry Higgins (Keith 
Rosenblum), by vocalizing Without You 
in the production oi My Fair Lady. 



322 



"The directors spend 95 per 
cent of their time and effort 
on the technical part of the 
production. " 




Consequently, the majority of 
the shows are quite good from a 
technical standpoint, but are 
severly lacking in dramatic content. 
So one might conclude from this 
that the utmost misgiving is on the 
directorial side of the fence. 

And for University Theatre to 
say they have no talent to work 
with is a cop-out. Jim Thorton 
took campus talent and, being the 
strong director that he is, produced 
hit after hit at the Cabaret at Friar 
Tuck's 

Thorton also had the good sense 
to choose good scripts like The 
Apple Tree, The Fantasticks, and 
Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and 
Living In Paris. 

University Theatre has a definite 
knack for choosing to do such tired 
old plays as My Fair Lady, The 
Place, and After the Rain, etc. 

Any good performer will tell 
you that an actor can go just so far 
on his own when it comes to 
creating a part, but then he needs 
good, strong, intelligent direction. 

If all persons in theatre were 
capable of carrying out their part 
to the fullest extent, then there 
would be no need for a director, 
but that's not the case. We all 
need some type of outside 
objectivity to help us better 
ourselves. 

University Theatre has dumped 
upon the campus constituency 
farce after farce (that's no farce as 
in theatre-of-the-absurd, that's 
farce as in worthless) of a 
production. It has been my job to 
inform the Stater readership of 
such mediocrity. 

Some people have called me and 
my writing a happening or an 
occurance; I prefer to call it 
sincerity, in hope that my integrity 
as a theatre critic will persuade 
University Theatre to do a Uttle 
house-cleaning in the directorial 
department and teach themselves 
and their students the "how-to" 
and benefits of providing 
professional, worthwhile, 
entertaining theatre to an eagerly 
awaiting public.

Artist-Lecture series 



Encounter with artists 




"Encounter with artists" is an 
important part of the college 
experience, said Joanna Harley, 
director of the Artist-Lecture 

series. 

The Artist-Lecture series 
provides programs of performing 
artists and lecturers each quarter. 

"Our goal is to enhance 
University programming," 
explained Harley. "And our first 
and foremost responsibility is to 
appeal to the students." 

A committee of six students and 
six faculty members select 
programs representative of many 
campus interests. 

"We have to deal with what 
artists and speakers are available," 
said Harley. "But we try to give a 
balance of activities." 

"Both the faculty and students 
benefit from our programming," 
said George Schafer, student 
co-chairman. 




"The Artist-Lecture series is one 
of the ways for students and 
faculty to stay on top of things," 
he said. 

Student activity fees fund the 
lecture budget of $12,000, while 
university monies, totalling 
$30,000, and ticket sales support 
the performing arts. 

The Artist-Lecture series is also 
responsible for handling a Speakers 
Bureau for all campus 
organizations. 

Receiving $2500 of student fees 
this year, the Speakers Bureau 
contacted and arranged speakers 
for any interested campus 
organization.

Dr. Benjamin Spock was brought 
to Kent by the Bureau at the 
request of the Student Union. 

Harley explained that the 
Bureau allows for more students to 
benefit from campus speakers 
other than individual student 
groups. 

It is the perfonning artists and 
disti]iguished speaker programming 
that require the most attention of 
the Artist-Lecture committee. 

One of the committee's greatest 
handicaps is the lack of good 
facilities available for programs. 
Harley explained that University 
Auditorium is "really too small a 
hall." 






"University Auditorium can seat 
1,000, but really only 800 seats are 
suitable because of bad sight lines 
to the stage," Harley added. 

"Although students find the 
auditorium hot and 
uncomfortable," Harley said, "the 
performers have found the hall to 



be very intimate." 

The problem of inadequate 
facilities means "we can't make 
money," said Schafer. "The 
student concert committee can put 
on a concert in the gym and make 
money-but we can't. They can put 
the Doobie Brothers in Memorial 




Gym-but it would be an insult to 
put Julian Bream there," he 
explained. 

Performers like JuUan Bream 
"commend Kent State for having a 
receptive audience," said Harley. 
"Kent is not the kind of audience 
that gives standing ovations on 
every occasion, but when they do 
they reaUy mean it. 

"I remember one performer who 
dreaded coming to Kent because 
she thought, 'Oh no, not Ohio,"' 
said Harley. "But after the first 
number she told her crew to give it 
aU." 

Performing artists for this year 
included Julian Bream, 



contemporary guitarist; Gina 
Bachauer, pianist; the Vienna Boys 
Choir and the Kathakali theatre 
from southern India. 

Distinguished lecturers mcluded 
Robert L. Sinsheimer, biophysicist; 
John Hollander and Stephen 
Spender, poets speaking in memory 
of W.H. Auden; and Ruby Dee, 
entertainer.

Photography 
Boom 



College students today are the 
most visually oriented and visually 
sophisticated generation in the 
evolution of the human race, 
according to an article on college 
photography by Arthur Goldsmith, 
Popular Photography. 

This generation was brought up 
on television at home and in the 
classroom, on picture magazines, 
illustrated books and various audio 
visual presentations. 

This may explain why the 
photography boom has hit many 
colleges across the nation, 
including KSU. Today, more than 
600 colleges and universities offer 
photography courses with a total 
enrollment of over 80,000, 
according to Goldsmith. 

The most popular photo course 



at KSU is Basic Black and White. 
All journalism majors, some art 
majors, and some education majors 
are required to take this course. 

About 90 students enroll in 
Basic Black and White each 
quarter. It is a controlled course, 
which means any student desiring 
the course must have it as a specific 
requirement or have permission to 
take it. 

Many non-majors try to take the 
course to learn a little about 
photography; however, they are 
usually closed out because of 
limited teaching staff and limited 
darkroom facilities. 

The photographs on these three 
pages are representative of what 
students are seeing and 
photographing in Basic Black and 
White Photography.

"...bug-eyed...'' 

The '73 gridiron season was 
certainly an eye-opener, as it 
seemed realistic for so long that a 
second MAC crown was in our 
reach. 

A guy named "Mouse" on the third 
floor of Johnson got tired of 
walking the halls outside his room, 
so he decided to take a walk 
outside his window one day.

...oh, the rhino? He sleeps in the sandbox." 

As Glenn and Eva Olds opened the presidential home to 
student and faculty inspection, they couldn't very well 
hide some of the peculiarities of their home- like the 
bird's nest on the wall, or her stuffed leather rhino, or 
the sandbox...

Liberated women on campus, from 
the Kent Women' Action 
Collective, realized there are some 
people they can never change. 



'\..if you can't lick 'em,

One dude from Johnson Hall 
figured out how to beat the high 
cost and poor taste of dorm food 
with a Uttle Bar-B-Q in February.

*'...exit grog stage left, 
enter the nag stage right.' 

Unnamed KSU officials made their 
unhappiness with the Grog mascot 
known and were more than eager 
to phase in the donated charms of 
the Golden Flash steed and a 
cloaked blonde rider for all the Dix 
Stadium games. 



Interest in the occult was high during the whole school 
year but flared most for Halloween parties, like this one 
on College Street, and then later in winter quarter when 
The Exorcist came to Cleveland. 



"...being the exorcist was easy.

"...Mr. Fingers 
faddles baffle." 

An ACPB second-stringer amazed 
students at the Student Center in 
March after a wild private party at 
Mike Solomon's the night before.

"...nowhere on the 
know-your-figure chart."" 

The people in the Home 
Economics Department are 
expanding toward a total "human 
ecology" interpretation of the 
field; but still attract a majority 
who want to be scientific 
home makers. 



"...the pause that

At the Campus Day festivities, 
academics were the farthest thing 
from this guy's head as he relaxed 
on the circus rides with a smoke.

"...the post sixties depression." 

In a period when very little of anything made sense, 
when nothing was sacred, when security was stripped 
off, it was kind of embarrassing that the show did go on.

''...very little singing in the rain." 

The weather in Ohio is probably the largest single factor 
in depressing the mass of the student body, here on the 
rainy afternoon of October 13.

.try for a tight shot of the victory bell." 

TV camera crews from Cleveland exploited every angle 
for their May 4, 1973 revisit- tryijig to make a story on 
a student mood that was barely even a mood.

"Getting it all together," 
represents a gathering of ideas, 
concepts, but more important a 
bringing together of exceptional 
talent. 

Each editor and staff strives to 
find a unique approach. Just being 
different is easy: a square book, 
the biggest book, the smallest 
book, etc. But to discover a way to 
be significantly different must go 
beyond the gimmick, the 
whimsical, the non-book, or the 
shocker. We felt there was a way to

cover the university cominunity 
and activities witli a greater degree 
of involvement, to relate to the 
individuals, to go deeper than 
football Saturday, or opening night 
at the theatre. 

I feel this edition of the Bun- 
represents a new and significant 
concept in yearbooks. This 
people-to-people concept began as 
an idea two years ago. It took one 
year to gather a staff of 
exceptional photographers and 
writers. The 66 picture stories go 



beyond the surface, each 
photographer and writer had to 
become involved with people and 
events. 

In a sense, the challenge was to 
do more than just see the event. 
But to reach out and experience, to 
feel, to understand relationships 
between people. 

Each staff member had to make 
a commitment, had to put it on the 
line. Many of the stories took 
weeks, even months to produce. It 
is not unusual to have one or two 



exceptional photographers or 
writers on a staff, but to gather a 
staff of exceptional, dedicated 
photographers, writers, layout 
people and technical staff is indeed 
exceptional. And it doesn't just 
happen. It takes a long time and a 
lot of effort to get it all together.
